Those 'red glowing eyes' is part of a evolutionary adaption in the eye called 'Tepidious Luceum'. It's a common trait found in more of the
'primitive' primates (Lemurs...etc).
The Tepidious Luceum enables the primates to have somewhat of a 'nightvision'. If someone were to flash a camera in their eyes, they would be
blind/stunned for quite some time.
For the simple fact that these photos of the creature exhibit a tepidious luceum (which is nearly impossible to create artifically) I'm going
to have to agree that these pictures are real.
No man in a costume, No clever photshop manifestations.
This is the real thing folks, whatever it is.
I did a lot of thinking about what you're saying here, finding it very interesting and cool that you've brought some actual biology with
explaination to the table. Though I think it's an adaptation, not evolution, I think on board with you on this one. Well said Simulacra.
There is a faked picture out there that looks total chump, but this one seems to exhibit some more detail-oriented differences. If I were huge and
afraid, I wouldn't be running around in the daylight hours, especially if I had night-vision abilities.
Another interesting part about the story is that the photos were sent to a broadcasting network anonymously. Usually hoaxers are looking for some
kind of credit. Even those who 'get their kicks' off of seeing it around wouldn't just send it to one station hoping it would be taken
Hmmm....curiouser and curiouser...
