My story takes place in the woods next to my house in Springhill, FL.
Now for a mental picture there were two set of woods seperated by a retention pond that was always a barren waste land. Well to start off me and my neighborhood friends were all playing manhunt, it was approx 2200 hours or 10pm in civilian time. We were all running around jumping and diving and hiding from each other. I ran and jumped in the a patch of over grown grass, then something ran and stopped right in front of me.
As I focused on it I saw 2 skinny green striped legs. I could only guess the height of this creature is about 3-4 feet high. I tried to keep up but it started running so I decided to chase it and I ran as fast as I could. Now I was 17 years old at the time and in great shape running the mile and half in just over 11 minutes. So as I started to get up it ran, I chased after it and I could literally see the branches and bushes move as it ran from me. It was only maybe 2-3 feet from me the entire chase. During the chase I couldn't see it but only see the branches and the noise it was making as it was running away from me. But once the woods ending and it met the black top road and houses the creature disappeared.
I asked my friends about this creature and they have all seen this creature but no one has been able to capture it or get a picture of it. My friends and I have still tried to look and capture or get proof of the creature but yet no luck. I have looked up for possible creature it might be and what not but have been unable to get any idea. What could this be?
