Human-like animal sighted walking in Portugal jungle
The mysterious sighting of the unknown beast appears to show the animal walking upright slowly across the desert wasteland. In the clip, the creature appears to be over six-feet tall and walks with a stooped back, very long arms and a pair of legs.
The video has sparked a heated online debate as sceptics labelled the footage fake while others struggled to explain it beyond pointing towards aliens or mythical creatures.
The bizarre man-like hairy beast appears to camouflage itself as it blends in with its surroundings while birds are heard to chirp calmly in the background.
To prove the veracity of the video, the camera then pans to show the reveal of the rest of the desert, more birds and a parked car.

The footage was first posted online over a month ago and has already racked up an impressive 200,000 views.
However, the internet is torn as to what the animal might be.
Some believe it could be the fabled chupacabara, other have pointed to its similarity to Big Foot.
Several users have claimed the creature “has to be an alien”.
The myth of ‘el chupacabra’ began in Latin America when farmers found their goats dead and drained of all their blood
However, the more cynical viewers have suggested the video couldn’t possibly be real.
One user simply said: “Extremely poor camera quality. I don’t believe it.”
Others pointed out that the creature was massive and couldn’t possibly hide in the open landscape from human contact.
Another added: “Funny how you can never get a clear picture of these so-called alien sightings. Hard for anyone to believe them when it happens all the time.”
One Youtube user insisted the footage looked “animated”.
