Pterosaurs and a Joke in San Diego County

A few years ago, before I was fully aware of the significance of reports of sightings of apparent pterosaurs in North America, I received a report from a lady in San Diego County, Califorina. Now I have another report, from another eyewitness, supporting the idea that ropens or ropen-like flying creatures live in Southern California. Last…

News Media Attention on Live Pterosaurs

Traditional news media writers, in the past, have given us detailed (or not-so-detailed) accounts of apparent encounters with “dragons” or “pterodactyls,” although the article in the mid-ninteenth-century Illustrated London News now seems highly suspect, regarding its origin. But more recent news writers have also commented on sightings of possible pterosaurs. Author Tracks Pterodactyls Among Us Matt Coker,…

Pterosaur News

Another eyewitness has given his name to the world; for an American to admit observing an apparent living pterosaur, that is news. Tom Carson, brother to the “Gitmo Pterosaur” eyewitness Patty Carson, had no knowledge of his sister’s 1965 sighting until he spoke with Patty a few weeks ago (the flying creature seen by her was an apparent…

Orange and Black Pterosaur Flying in Texas

Although some critics may discount the experience of a child, he has no doubt what he saw. He is now one of a number of pterosaur eyewitnesses who may be interviewed for a film…

Flying Fox Fruit Bat

Even recent criciticms (for example, by the paleontologist Darren Naish) of living-pterosaur research sometimes includes the insinuation of misidentification regarding bats, especially the fruit bat called “flying fox.” A typical sighting of a large long-tailed pterosaur, however, differs greatly from a sighting of a Flying Fox fruit bat. For one thing, at least some critics fail to realize…

Pterosaurs, Evolution, and Extinction

My associates and I, including Garth Guessman and David Woetzel, have no confidence in Darwin’s philosopohy of unlimited evolution. In fact, we actively point out weaknesses in that idea. We do not portray a modern living pterosaur as disproof, by itself, of the General Theory of Evolution (unlimited common ancestry); but I believe that it will become part…
