|Flying Horse of Mexico|
The only known photograph
|Theories|| · Cryptid|
· Dirt on the camera
The Flying Horse of Mexico was a flying creature allegedly photographed by a 24-year-old woman named Loyola Quintanilla Rosas. The story was reported on by several news sites, and authorities are currently looking into it.
The dark object appeared to have two legs and was seen hovering into view out of nowhere as volcano Colima, 300-miles west of Mexico City, spewed out smoke. Captured on webcam after Colima erupted this week, the enigmatic “equine” vanished moments later.
There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:
- An undiscovered species (a Cryptid)
- Dirt on the camera
- A drone
- A hoax
- The Mexican authorities stand by the drone theory. A spokesman from the country’s Civil Protection of the Ministry of Interior said:
- “It is most likely a drone of some sort. We are looking into it.”
