Something strange happen in the dark woods of California Yosemite Park.
The images, captured on different surveillance cameras, in different time and in different places nearby, are absolutely identic to those we have seen previously: same shape, same walk... of the same creatures!
There is a Legend by Natives of that area that tell the story of strange creatures, deformed beings without body or arms but only legs, that walk, during the night, in the woods: The Night Crawlers.
The Natives, from centuries have carved huge statue in the wood that rapresent what they have seen.
There is an AMAZING similarity between the creatures captured by video cameras and these strange carved statues.... and I find it really disturbingly!
Coincidence? Legend or Reality?

An interesting video compare the footages.

Great find ... I had seen the videos of the creatures walking at night but I didn't know about the statues that exist.

The existence of statues is what makes it all a bit scary ... However, they could also be created by myth but who knows ...

S & F for a good find!

Ugh, Jamie Maussan again. That man has ZERO credibility and anyone attaching his name to their works will render them worthless.

Don't you like Jaime Maussan?

Ok. Fast forward and go TO THE IMAGES...

Jaime is a fraudster no doubt, but just because he has jumped all over this case doesn't mean the case is a hoax.

So far, I find this case to be the most compelling of recent times. I don't really know what to think about them, what they are exactly or where they're from.

Those that immediately shout "Extraterrestrial!" is being a bit too naive and wishful thinking. Perhaps if it is indeed some form of living creature and not a hoax it is a totally unknown species that lives deep in the woods and forest and mountains of that area.

Claiming they are E.T's without any shred of proof is foolish

Ah, the same old marionette chicanery and goofball vagaries...

Say, they didn't really mention a whole lot about those statues did they? All they did was show a bunch of footage of them and nothing about who made them, when, and why they did. But that's not too surprising.

If anything, these videos show little more than the fact that often times old fashioned movie magic can prove to be much more believable than modern CGI under the right circumstances. For hoaxers, this would be a good area of focus.

Unfortunately, I loathe pranksters and the poor rubes that zealously follow them.

Here is the original footage, or as far as I am aware this is the original:

Thanks for sharing the video... Part of me wants to believe these weird things, are real and not hoxaed. Though, because of legend, it might be hoaxed, but so far no one has stepped forward for notoriety or what have you for hoaxing them(as in some hoaxed cases). Maybe not yet but it hasn't been proved as fake or even real ET. To say; Inconclusively there's no proof of either side by "Fact or Fiction" show and with people investigating it.
I'm looking for more info on the legend and the statues.

RIght...I was thinking the same thing. It would have been nice if they gave some sort of info about those statues.....as far as we know they could have been made last week. Not to mention the fact that these 'creatures' are obviously puppets....it doesn't even look like whoever is making them 'walk' knows enough about puppetry to make them walk correctly. I do suppose....to be a Devil's Advocate for a second....That True Alien Beings would likely look nothing like a humanoid modeled after our own evolution.....so if aliens are real, they'd probably be far more likely to look like something crazy like these 'night crawlers' than they would Mr. Spock...or even tiny grey person with Big Eyes.....Still even if these 'night crawlers' were real beings...I can't imagine an evolutionary advantage to walking as if you are an extremely badly puppeted marionette!


PS is 'puppeted' a real word? or did I just make that up?

Well, first of all , in the video provided by the OP, the presenter suggests that there are two creatures, one larger, and one smaller. I believe that if the subjects are indeed creatures , that in fact the one which appears smaller, is simply in the background, further away. If you observe the video closely, and look at the placement of the feet within the shot, you will see that the smaller looking creature is clearly further away than the one which appears larger.

Second of all, the way the creatures appear to walk defies physics. There are several moments within the video where you would expect the closer of the two creatures to fall over onto its rear... if it even HAS a rear. Further more, the presenter of the show follows his chatter about the featured video, by introducing an older bit of footage, which would at a glance appear to portray the same kind of being. However, although the shape of the creature in the image is very similar, there ARE minor but telling differences in the manner of its movement.

The creatures in the first video seem to lurch and have to swing themselves forward, in a curious, carefully thought out manner, using thier centre of gravity, more than any fluid ambulatory capability to achieve movement. In the older video however, the movement of the limbs seems more fluid. The legs move but the head area seems to remain in constant motion in one single direction, being carried forward more confidently , with a far less precarious gait than that of the subjects in the new video.

Although I lack the expertise to show you an example, if you were to put the image of the creature from the new video centre screen, and then line up a similarly centred version of the creature from the old footage, you would see that the movement of the new sample, appears drunken , with the head moving forward and backward as it sways over its staggered gait, where as the older footage reveals that despite the elongated limbs of the subject, its head remains steady in its momentum, not rocking back and forth as it moves, but bobbing gently and keeping its legs in much more graceful order.

Thats the way I see it. However, I havent got a clue wether these creatures are genuine or not. I wouldnt dare comment on the authenticity of either video untill I have seen some physical evidence to support thier existance, because there are any number of ways to hoax these things these days.

I had never heard of these "things" before. I don't want to make judgement on what they are either as I know absolutely nothing about puppets and have never actually met a real life Extra-Terrestrial(=P)...but either way, these are pretty awesome and at least make you think a bit.
One thing that confused me though/made me slightly skeptical is the fact they have "clothes" on. Surely this would be an easy way of hiding strings/frames for a marionette puppet? They also appear to be fairly baggy "clothes" as when they walk you can see the material/cloth swaying a bit.
As other posters have said though, theres no evidence to prove/disprove anything at all...so I'm gonna be sitting on the fence with this watching the sky =]

A very well made film by 'Fact or Fiction'. This is a very rare example of a case that I find compelling.
I've studied the films extremely closely and believe them to be genuine - where the creatures originate from I couldn't guess.

If these creatures are extraterrestrial how did they get here? They don't appear to have any arms! How did they build their craft? This is a very strange and exciting case with the statues proving that they have been seen before.

As cool as they are, it is puppetry.

Look at 1:32. The person controling the marinette (wirch is done with long bamboo poles and line) makes a mistake and the Night Crawler apparently achieves anti-gravity till the snag is undone.

I saw the same puppetry done at Burning Man.

Still looks cool on cam though.

there are a few blokes right now laughing whilst they remove their stilts and white sheets or there really are creatures that look like blokes with stilts and white sheets.

i know which one i am more inclined to think is more possible.
edit on 12-5-2011 by lifeform11 because: the other word i used for laughing had some sort of censor on it.

There was a somewhat long thread last month, on the original night-time video that is shown within this video.

Strange Stick-like creatures caught on security camera above Fresno in Yosemite

The first thing I though when I saw the video was, "guy on stilts".

Let's assume the creatures are real- why on earth would they wear all white clothing? Not to mention, all the way over their head.....???

First of all, can somebody confirm that those carved statues are something that has actually pre-existed for a while? I did some internet searches, by I haven't found anything on them yet (maybe I'm using the wrong keywords). Does anyone have information about those statues?

...Oh -- and Jaime Maussan saying they are previously-existing carvings is not a confirmation that they are.

However, even if those statues do predate this video, that could be meaningless. If these walking stick-figures are part of a hoax, the hoaxsters could have modeled their "aliens" from those pre-existing carved statues. It would add an air of authenticity to the hoax.

I still like to think these might be some kind of wierd creatures, but what you say is pretty true. If they didnt make the "puppets" after the statues then they could have done it the other way around, after the sightings of the first "ET"s. What better way to get more publicity and fool people who want to believe in this.

Thank you to the OP!

This is one of the funniest youtube clips I've seen today!


Have a S&F and small dry cleaning bill for me nearly choking on my coffee!
