The Flatwoods Monster has it origins in North America.It's first apparition and maybe the only was in the town of Flatwoods in Braxton County, West Virginia, USA on September 12, 1952.
Various descriptions of the entity exist. Most agree that it was at least 10 feet (3 m) tall and that it had a red face which appeared to glow from within, and a green body. Witnesses described the creature's head as having bulging, non-human eyes and as either being shaped like a heart, or as having a large heart shaped cowling behind it. The creature's body was described as being man-shaped and clad in a dark pleated skirt; later described as being green. Some accounts record that the creature had no visible arms, while others describe it as having short, stubby arms; ending in long, claw-like fingers, which protruded from the front of its body.
