Характерные признаки

Night crawlers (also called Fresno aliens, "skin crawler", Fresno Nightcrawler or simply "nightcrawler") are usually referred to as cryptids (an animal or plant whose existence is possible, but not proven by academic science). Other examples of cryptids are yetti and the moth man.

It is believed that for the first time these strange creatures were filmed in Fresno County, California (hence the name) in March 2011, and then a year later in Yosemite National Park. However, on the web you can find videos of these creatures dating back to the nineties. Since then, they have often been caught in the lens of surveillance cameras. At the moment, there is no known case when they would have been removed by someone personally.

Night crawlers look like they are short (about 1.2 meters tall) whitish creatures with tiny (or missing) heads, small torsos, and disproportionately long legs. According to the records, they are completely devoid of hands. They are usually spotted near swamps.

Opinions about the origin of these creatures differ.  Most often, researchers believe that this is an unexplored species of living beings, but there are also those who consider them aliens who have settled on our planet.

Of the rational hypotheses trying to explain the recordings with these creatures, it is worth highlighting deliberate falsification, since many researchers and observers note that some of the recorded creatures look like jumping people with their heads and hands in their pants, and some look like people on stilts.
