SOUTH CAROLINA (WPDE-TV) — The South Carolina Emergency Management Division took to twitter on Wednesday, urging people to be vigilant for South Carolina’s famed Lizard Man during the upcoming eclipse.

The tweet says “Regarding possible paranormal activity potentially occurring during the #SolarEclipse2017. As always, if you see something, say something,” and includes a graphic that places Lizard Man sightings along the path of totality.

“SCEMD does not know if Lizardmen become more active during a solar eclipse, but we advise that residents of Lee and Sumter counties should remain ever vigilant,” the graphic said.

People quickly took to Twitter to ask if SCEMD was serious.

“So you are admitting that paranormal activity is real??? My crazy ex girlfriend was telling the truth. Hahahaha,” one man wrote.

SCEMD responded by saying “Note the words “possible” and “potential”… we will neither confirm… nor deny.”

In further follow up tweets, SCEMD cited a NASA map, made by cartographer for NASA, Joshua Stevens, that matched up reported sightings of Bigfoot with the eclipse. That map is known as “Sunsquatch.”
