Beautiful and Terrifying Cryptoid

Cryptoids, Strange Animals


My friend and I were driving to Carbondale, CO from Denver late at night. We both spotted a huge wolf-like creature in the middle of the highway. Luckily it was around 3am so we were the only car on the road and I was able to stop the car in time. We froze, with goosebumps, and made eye contact with the creature for what felt like a long time before it jumped the median along the highway and disappeared into the dark woods. The beautiful and terrifying cryptoid was taller than our car – around 4-5 feet tall on all four legs, with piercing eyes. There are no wolves in Colorado and this was certainly larger than a wolf. We had never seen anything like it and we both still think of the experience often.
