A Description Of Mothman

    The writer John Keel describes the Mothman (based upon more than 100 eyewitness accounts) as:

            * Height: Between five and seven feet tall.  Usually described as "taller than a good-sized man."
            * Breadth: Broad at the top with a slight taper downwards.  Always described as "very broad, much broader than a man."
            * Covering: Witnesses have been unable to determine if it is clothed or covered in skin.  Generally described as being grey, though some thought it was brown,  One witness thought it was covered with grey fur.  Daylight sightings by others do not substantiate this.
            * Head: Seen from the back it appears to have no head.  Few witnesses reported seeing any face at all.
            * Eyes: Self-luminous, bright red, approximately two to three inches in diameter, set wide apart.  Witnesses say the eyes are set in near the top of the shoulders.
            * Legs:  Man-like.  No witness has ever been able to describe the feet.
            * Arms:  None.  No witness has ever reported seeing arms.
            * Wings: Folded against the back when not in use.  Wingspread, everyone agrees, is about ten feet.  Bat-like.  Do not flap in flight.
            * Carriage:  Animal walks erect like a man.  Does not stoop like a bear or ape.  Moves its legs in shuffling manner.  Some said it "waddled."
            * Sound: Loud squeaks, like a mouse.  One witness said it sounded "like a squeaky fan belt."  Two witnesses testified they heard a mechanical humming sound as the creature flew overhead.
            * Speed: It is said to have kept pace with automobiles moving seventy to one hundred mph.  Few birds can achieve this in level flight.  Pilot witnesses estimated it was traveling at least seventy mph in level flight without flapping its wings.
