The Riverside Monster, also known as the Riverside Bridge Monster and the Brain Tickler of Riverside, is a bizarre lanky cryptid that was first encountered by Charles Wetzel on November 8, 1958. The creature was described as tall and lanky, with a “protuberant mouth” and glowing green eyes.
The creature was described later by Charles Wetzel as having a “round, scarecrow-ish head” and lacking ears. Its body was very tall and lanky. He also described how the creature’s eyes were “shining like something fluorescent” and that it possessed a protuberant mouth. He later recalled that the thing’s legs stuck out sideways from the “body” and the skin looked “scaly, like leaves.”
