Where is the least likely place to see a modern living pterosaur? Inside a building. If you want to become an eyewitness to that kind of flying creature, go outside, or at least drive around. Just be prepared to stop safely before gazing too long at a distraction like a “pterodactyl.”
It’s no wonder that many reported sightings of the flying creatures come from drivers and passengers in automobiles. In particular, when we drive on a freeway or highway, we cover a great distance in a shorter time, and that means traveling through more land, increasing the possibility of a sighting. Consider some examples.
Alabama Pterosaur Sighting
I just wanted to let you know, my husband and I saw one in Alabama a few years ago. I have been searching recently to find out what it is. I have no doubt this is what it was. My husband and I said it looked like a dinosaur. It was flying in front of our car across an open highway. It’s wingspan was probably between 8-10 feet.
Sighting on a Rural Road in Canada
About 15 years ago I was driving on a rural road [in Saskatewan, Canada] on a bright sunny day in June, when out of the corner of my eye I saw what I thought was a small plane heading right for me on the driver’s side. I actually ducked my head and ended up in the ditch to avoid what turned out to be a huge flying creature. It all happened so fast and I didn’t get a good look at it as I was busy trying to control my car. But it flew over my head and disappeared into a gravel pit.
Sighting in North Carolina
. . . she told me of an experience she had while driving on a major highway near Asheville, NC when a HUGE winged black creature flew very low over her car. She felt this ‘creature’ had more to do with something demonic. . . . I am also aware, thanks to your book, that there could very possibly be still-surviving flying dinosaurs. She didn’t see any feathers, feet or head but described it as black, having ‘sharp edges’, no feathers and HUGE.
I cannot imagine how a driver could concentrate on driving when a large pterosaur flies right in front of the windshield.
What do old dragons and old pterosaurs have in common? Celtic dragons had arrows at the end of their tails . . .
What could be worse than any nightmare? In the dead of night, you are awakened by what you fear most, glaring down at you. To humans, this monster should not even exist except in a dream. This one is real. Race out of your bedroom; it’s after you. Race out the front door; it follows. Search for a place to hide; it’s too late. You are exposed, surrounded by many monsters ready to feast. You have fallen into their trap. Your family is scattered, chased across the freezing countryside. You are alone. You are Eptesicus fuscus, a Big Brown Bat.
