Pterosaur Sightings in the USA

I recently learned about an investigator who is compiling pterosaur sighting reports, of encounters in the United States. I encourage such research. I have hesitated making an exhaustive location-compilation myself: Some people assume that it could help predict where a modern pterosaur could be found or it could illuminate migration patterns.

It is…

According to the third edition of Searching for Ropens and Finding God, it seems to have started at the time of George Washington and Benjamin Franklin, in the late 1700’s: Four years before George Washington was elected to his first term in the…
