A recent discovery has been made in Lampasas County, Texas: a large land monster is said to inhabit an open field to the left of Highway 190 West.
Richie and I were fortunate enough to spot this monster on our way to Austin three days ago.
We immediately pulled off the road to take her picture before she could vanish. Amazingly, we succeeded in capturing two very clear shots of her, but the pictures have been met with skepticism, including the typical “Photoshop” allegation.
Out of deference to the Loch Ness Monster, Richie refers to the Lampasas Land Monster as “Lessie.” True to our photo, Lessie has been reported as having the appearance of a rust-colored serpent with a seahorse-shaped head and emerald green eyes. She has been seen by a surprising number of residents and commuters, and one lady even claims to have walked up and touched her. There is much speculation as to what she could be, the two most popular theories being:
1) an evolved species of sea serpent that adapted when the ocean disappeared from Central Texas, or
2) a carefully constructed formation of bulldozer tracks.
Eyewitness reports indicate that Lessie frequents the same general
area of the field, and tends to remain remarkably still during
sightings. They say the best chances of spotting her are when the
grass is mowed.
