loveland lizard

The Loveland Frog (aka the Loveland Lizard) is a legendary humanoid frog described as standing roughly 4 feet (1.2 m) tall, allegedly spotted in Loveland, Ohio. A local man reported seeing three froglike men at the side of the road in 1955, and a police officer claimed to have seen a similar creature on a bridge in the city in 1972.

University of Cincinnati folklore professor Edgar Slotkin compared the Loveland frog to Paul Bunyan, saying that stories about it have been passed down for “several decades” and that sighting reports seem to come in predictable cycles.

The Loveland Frog (aka the Loveland Lizard) is a legendary humanoid frog described as standing roughly 4 feet tall, allegedly spotted in Loveland, Ohio. A local man reported seeing three frog-like men at the side of the road in 1955, and a police officer claimed to have seen a similar creature on a bridge in the city in 1972.

On the 3rd of March 1972 at 1:00 am. A police officer named Ray Shockey claimed to have been driving carefully -because of icy conditions- along the Riverside Drive heading into Loveland when a creature scurried across the road in front of his vehicle. The creature was fully illuminated in his vehicle’s headlight and he provided the following description. The creature was three to four feet tall, about 50 to 75 pounds, and had leathery skin. The creature was crouched like a frog, but stood erect and stared directly at him. It then climbed over the guardrail back down towards the river. In an investigation by Shockey’s fellow officers, scratch marks or abrasions on the guardrail where the incident had been reported were found. However, there is no photographic evidence to support those claims.
