A Florida woman is looking for help identifying what in the hell ran through her backyard. I've racked my brain for awhile and I honestly think I've cracked the case, but we'll get to that later.

Cristina Ryan from Palm Coast, Florida isn't sure what she saw run through her yard on surveillance footage this week, but she's pretty sure it's a dinosaur running through her yard.

"Any animal we can come up with that would be 'walking' at 3:40 in the morning, wouldn't walk this way," she told FOX 35 News. "Maybe I've watched 'Jurassic Park' too many times, but I see a raptor or other small dinosaur!"

She told the news source that everyone she's shown the video to says it looks like a dinosaur.

Now, I've figured this out. I've spent enough time as an "Honorary" Westender to know exactly what this is.

Watch the video again, very carefully, then watch this next video:

Here's where I see similarities as well, other than the obvious; the movement of the legs.

First, knowing how often times, the infrared works on security cameras, it's pretty easy for them to not quite pick up all the details of the subject, especially if it's something wispy or porous, like a peacock's tail.

Then, it's the head for me. This thing's head is shiny in the video:

The head of a peacock isn't exactly shiny, but it is a more vibrant color than the tan colored back of the body, and shorter feathers that are more like a glossy fur than anything, which the infrared would bounce as sort of a shimmer on.

I'm settling on peacock. Just for my last argument, just look at this one with the short hair.

I think I've cracked it, but I'm still open to other ideas.
