This photo, which is said to be taken in the 1800s, shows a cowboy holding what looks to be a small bipedal reptile. If you look closely, the strange creature has longer back legs than the front, a long tail, and a slender snout. In all reality, this is most likely a doctored photo, but you never know.

Sightings of Colorado's 'Mini T-Rex

More recently, there have been sightings in the Cortez, Colo. area, Pueblo, Colo., and Pagosa Springs, Colo. Each sighting describes a similar creature. A bipedal reptile that stands about 3-1/3 feet tall by 3 to 5 feet long: it's similar to a dinosaur and possibly a large bird.

Dinosaur experts have looked into the case and uncovered close to 11 similar stories.

Colorado is full of old folklore and conspiracy theories. From the Thunderbirds on the Grand Mesa to Grand Junction's "Ute Curse."
