Pterosaur Sighting in England

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Africa Sightings, Danger to people, Europe

By nonfiction author Jonathan D. Whitcomb Living-pterosaur (LP) cryptozoology involves interviewing eyewitnesses of unusual flying creatures, analyzing details in those reports, and comparing various accounts. Sometimes a number of sightings occur in the same general area. Let’s look at the British Isles, an area mostly neglected in my previous writings about these wonderful flying creatures […]

Lighting the Flying Creature of the Night

Welcome, RM-2 I’m grateful to this new subscriber, from the UK, who has been active in cryptozoological research (he recently gave me important information on another unrelated sighting report). By the way, Namibia, on the southwest coast of Africa (much desert), is the second most sparsely populated country in the world, according to Wikipedia. A desert […]
