Crosbyton paleontologist says giants walked the earth

CROSBYTON, TX (KCBD) -

A Crosbyton paleontologist says giants once walked the earth, and he's got the fossils to prove it.

Joe Taylor is Curator of the Mount Blanco Fossil Museum in Crosbyton. He says researchers have found evidence of giants and dinosaurs ranging from 9 feet to 28 feet tall.

"I sculpted this, and based on a modern human femur for the dimensions, I blew this drawing up. You can see that the man that fit this figure was something upwards of fifteen feet," Taylor said.

Taylor is working on a documentary film based on his research.
