Baby Morphs Into Black-Eyed Reptoid

“I have never told anyone this but a couple years ago (2014) I used to work at a Thai restaurant that was right next to a Walmart. Once in awhile, when my break would start I would walk over to Walmart. One time, I was walking on the sidewalk about midway between the two buildings and a woman exited the Walmart with a young child in a stroller. As I walked past them I looked at the child and it looked over at me - and I’m not joking when I say this - the child’s face turned grayish/green, expanded somewhat on the sides and stretched out a bit in the front, it’s eyes turned black. It glared at me, and stuck it’s tongue out at me (this only lasted a couple seconds). It’s face and eyes immediately went back to normal and it looked away like nothing had happened. I instantly knew that it was mocking me and did it deliberately so that I would see it. There was no one else on the sidewalk. It happened very fast but I remember it very clearly and think about it every once in awhile even though it happened at least 5 years ago.

When it initially happened I thought the child’s face was shifting because it was about to throw up but then when it stuck its tongue out I realized that I had just witnessed it shift on purpose. I know what I saw and even remember knowing exactly what I was seeing as it was happening. I instantly knew that this thing had done this on purpose and it was not some slip up. I have never been able to get the image out of my head. The best reference I can give is from the movie “The Devil’s Advocate.” There is a scene where the women are trying on clothes in a store and as the one woman pulls her dress over her head to try it on her face morphs into a demonic shape for a couple seconds as she looks at the other woman. That is exactly what happened to me except it sort of looked reptilian/demonic at the same time.” - Philip Erdman


Giant Hawk in Downtown Denver

“I saw a giant bird in downtown Denver several years ago. I was standing at a corner waiting to cross the street when I noticed it was starting to sprinkle a little. I looked up and it was one of those wind swept, partly sunny watercolor skies that you might see in dream or something. It was odd looking outside then. For that time of year anyway. I turned to look at the dark clouds over an office building about 20 floors high when I noticed this hawk-looking bird. At first I thought that's what it was. But then soared into a cloud that was pretty far up and that's when I froze. You know when you can see the proportions of something when it is next to something else that you know the size of. I looked at the building and the distance from the top of the roof to the clouds. This bird was huge and I stood there waiting for it to resurface from the clouds it never did. I will never forget the feeling that went through me when realized what I just saw." - brcmack

Facebook event announcement: Jack Cary - Cryptozoologist / Author - 'Paranormal Planet' - Arcane Radio

Join me as I welcome crypto researcher and investigator Jack Cary to Arcane Radio. Jack is the founder and current director at the Paranormal Intelligence Agency and a protege of the late JC Johnson at Crypto Four Corners, where he continues as a researcher. After many years of investigating crypto-creatures and paranormal phenomena in North America he has accumulated mounds of evidence that may prove the existence of strange creatures. His research lends credence to the notion that inter-dimensional doorways intermittently open, permitting the unintentional transference of a person, or being, across parallel realities and time. Jack's new book is titled 'Paranormal Planet.' - This should be an entertaining show!
