    ha ha, I love Mexican TV

    The video of the thing flying in the trees is just a bat, and the bird they are holding at the end is probably a nightjar or a frogmouth (both very bizzare looking birds). Also gotta love that the only "expert" they talked to is a cryptozoologist.

    LOL they actually believed it was a bruja, a witch. At the end they clearly say that the animal in question was no other thing than a bird not well known in the area. What is this crap IAB really

    A zoologist friend of mine, after watching this suggested Lurocalis semitorquatus, a nighthawk. It doesn`t have scales. Maybe scabies but not scales.

    Sorry, not a dragon.

    Too hard to tell from the blurry vid if the thing had feathers or scaly skin. However my though if it is skin the poor thing is probably diseased.

    Pretty cool.
    I`d rather have zombies than dragons though.
    At least you can fight zombies.

    My childhood dreams of dragons being real is finally coming true!!! :P
    Except not really. It`s from Mexico, so of course it`s gonna be something really drated up yet totally fake.

    Time for a biology lesson children, if it has feathers, two wings, and a feathered tail, then it is what we call a bird.

    Christ.. Yes it`s a real bird. It`s a species of frogmouth not commonly seen in Mexico, it probably got lost or brought in illegally. My bet would be the latter.

    Do they even RESEARCH this poo before broadcasting?

    Aww, the poor little bird is so distressed. I`ve seen better cameras sold out of Toy`s R Us. Here is a video of a tawny frogmouth that fell on to some dudes porch. Fallen frogmouth

    It`s a frogmouth aka a nightjar. They`re nocturnal and they eat moths and other bugs...
