One British man who claims to have had an green alien encounter as a child isn’t giving up on finding an explanation. You probably wouldn’t either if you saw a lizard-like thing with a tiny head that stood about 6-feet tall.

So that is why Ben Walgate, 35, is devoting his time to reporting on UFO and alien sightings. It’s all based on what he said he saw in a wooded area when he was 8-years old.
“The wooded area wasn’t that dense,” Walgate told The Daily Mirror, “so I got a good look at this thing. It might have only been a few seconds, but we made eye contact, it had black eyes.”
He added that whatever it was, it walked with a stoop, slightly bent over at the waste. It had a tiny head, oversized limbs and, needless to say, was the color green.
“It was definitely not of this Earth,” Walgate said. “It was such a weird vibe. Its head in proportion to its body was tiny.”
It’s easy to make fun of these types of stories (so please, be our guest). But it’s clear Walgate is taking it seriously. He even operates a YouTube channel, 401 Files, which is devoted to “researching the unexplained.”

Walgate offered further insight into the mysterious creature, saying it looked like a lizard — but definitely was not a lizard.
“It’s not like the stereotypical alien with the grey skin and the big black eyes. This thing was more lizard. I’m not saying it had scales, it wasn’t snake-like,” he said. “It was just other-worldly, it shouldn’t have been walking on two feet. This thing was walking right through the woods.”
Walgate claimed he was in the North Yorkshire Moors when he spotted the, uh, thing.
“If there are intelligent beings out there, and I’m not saying there are, but it’s highly likely there are, if they were coming here for some reconnaissance or research, it wouldn’t be difficult in a place like the North Yorkshire Moors to stay hidden,” he deduced.
“The foot traffic there isn’t too heavy, you have the odd cyclist or dog walker and the area is 500 and something square miles of woodland and moorland.”
