The moss man, also known as the peremalfait, is a hairy hominid thought to be native to the wetlands and wooded areas in the state of Florida.


The moss man is described as a hairy man-ape creature standing between 6 and 8 feet in height. The creature's eyes are said to glow a bright amber color. Rather than fur or hair, it is covered in a coat of thick moss, indicating either a botanical origin or a symbiotic relationship between a hominid and a moss.
