Flying Manta Ray-Like Creature Spotted in Spain


SPAIN — A man in Almeria, southern Spain, says he saw a flying creature he wasn’t able to identify.

The 68-year-old man, who provided a full name but asked to remain anonymous, told Cryptozoology News on Friday that he was driving home when the event took place at 12 p.m. on June 27.

“It was just about 5 seconds. It flew from my left, straight across the road and over the top in front of the car lights. It was about 5 meters off the floor and flying in a straight line,” he said.

The eyewitness says the being was about 5 meters long – about 8 feet – and appeared to be black.

“The wings were as long as the body and ran from the neck to the end, and was tapered. It was like bat wings in a way, but more manta ray in the style of flapping,” he explained.

He added that it had a head “that tapered dog like”.

“It had very narrow wings and I couldn’t see any appendages.”

In 2017, a British man claimed seeing an unidentified winged creature also in Almeria.
