Los Angeles has always been known for its diversity. Just about every ethnic group to have walked the planet can be found in this sprawling metropolis. It’s also been considered a place where “unique” people – with their “unique” beliefs congregate to. Thus, when a story circulated in 1934 that the City of Angels may have been the site of an ancient and bizarre civilization of lizard worshiping people, some Los Angelinosmerely smiled and uttered the now famous cliché: “Only in L.A.!”
In urban legend lore, they were known as the Lizard People.
