This is one of the most feared creatures in the Great Wooded South. No one has ever seen one move but anyone who has ever been in the deep, dark woods at night has heard them.

Firefighters, Coon hunters and the brave or ignorant who go traipsing through the boggy, soggy bottomlands alongside streams and rivers after dark have heard them.


They, and indeed we, have heard them at night grunting like crazed Rhinos and munching on anything living or dead that would fit inside their oversized mouths.

This is a rare picture of a Big mouthed Sycamorasauras. The Sycamorasauras is nocturnal and as I said no one has ever seen one move but they can always be heard in the dark of night in the woods. They can also play with the mind of man during the day. Experienced Woodsmen have learned not to close their eyes around them or turn their backs on them even during the day because they can be heard grunting and shuffling in the leaves when one isn't looking.

Some folks have described them as having four legs but those who have been through the horror of flashing a light on one at night have sworn that the two legs attached on the back are actually giant, gorilla type arms which are instantly frozen in time by the flashing light, and appear to have been gathering the living and dead into that huge mouth. In fact, what appears to be innocuous limbs stretching skyward as in this picture, according to some, are nothing more than extra arms and or legs which are displayed in this fashion to fool the unsuspecting.

It has been said that about any sound in the woods in the dark of night can be made by the Big mouthed Sycamorasauras and I for one believe it.

Whether or not they attack humans, I've never heard of it.

However, maybe no one has ever escaped those massive arms and that big mouth to tell about it.
