Is the Mystery Flesh Pit real or fake? People have questions about the Texas National Park “attraction” after its creator tweeted about a long-awaited update.
What is the Mystery Flesh Pit?
The Mystery Flesh Pit is the name given to a “bizarre natural geobiological feature discovered in the Permian basin region of West Texas in the early 1970s.”
That’s in the words of the creator, Trevor Roberts. The illustrator goes on to describe the national park’s fleshy central feature, which has posters and brochures.

He says in a chat with Tor: “The pit is characterized as an enormous subterranean organism of indeterminate size and origin embedded deep within the earth, displaying a vast array of highly unusual and often disturbing phenomena within its vast internal anatomy.”
In other words, it is a pit whose walls are made of a flesh-like substance, and which goes deep into the earth.
Is the Mystery Flesh Pit real or fake?
As mentioned, it’s a creation by artist Trevor Roberts. Thankfully.
It’s what’s called a worldbuilding project. Worldbuilding is the process of constructing a fictional universe so, despite the official-looking brochures, it is definitely something that a creative cooked up in his head.
