Sightings of this creature were first reported in 1735.  The Jersey Devil (also known as the Leeds Devil) is a legendary creature said to inhabit The Pine Barrens of Southern New Jersey.  The creature is often described as a flying biped with hooves, but there have been many variations over the years.  The common description is that of a kangaroo-like or wyvern-like creature with a goat- or horse-like head, leathery bat-like wings, horns, small arms with clawed hands, legs with cloven hooves, and a forked tail. It has been reported to move quickly and is often described as emitting a high-pitched “blood-curdling scream”
