The Jersey Devil is 3½ to 4 feet tall. It has hooves, wings about 2 feet long, the head of a collie dog, a long neck and the face of the horse. The back legs resembles those of a crane and its body looks like a serpent. It is also said to have glowing red eyes and a tail. This creature has a piercing scream. It walks on its back leg and doesn't use its front paws.
The Jersey Devil inhabits New Jersey, mainly in Pine Barrens.
First reports of the Jersey Devil dates back to the Native Americans.
There are many stories as to how the Jersey Devil was born. One of them is about Mrs. Leeds, in 1735, who after hearing that she was pregnant with her 13th child, said that that the baby might as well be a devil. And when it was born, the devil just flew from the womb to out of the window, cursing its mother as it flew away, high into the night sky.
There have been no concrete evidence to show that the Jersey Devil exists, thus it has been dismissed as a legend. But there are a few sightings coming from time the time in the same places, which may show that the Jersey Devil may just be there.
