South Carolina PterosaurSeptember 28th, 2010 at 21:17
I recently questioned another eyewitness of an apparent living pterosaur in South Carolina; this sighting is not directly related to the one reported by Susan Wooten a few years ago (although it may be of the same species of flying creature). But in this newly reported account, there were many eyewitness, at least four or five; it was at a soccer camp in Clinton, South Carolina, around 1994.
. . . when I saw it and it was flying north. It was huge, as big as a plane, and looked very similar to the sketch created by Susan Wooten on your website. . . . I saw a huge pterodactyl looking creature, flying very high in the sky. The strangest thing about the sighting was how slow the wings were flapping and how high it was flying. Several parents who were watching the scrimmages and some of the other players on the sidelines saw the creature too. . . . I could not believe it. I remember shouting “that was a pterodactyl!”, but everyone else [around me] that saw it, seemed to shrug it off in disbelief.
I periodically search for stuff about pterodactyls on the internet. This time I searched “pterosaur sightings south carolina”, and your site popped up. Thanks for trying to find this creature. I don’t know why there are no real pictures or videos of sightings . . . but if this creature I saw, or its offspring, are still alive, then someone will get it on film eventually. Keep trying.
Pterosaurs (non-extinct ones) are sometimes reported in press releases.
