By the modern pterosaur expert Jonathan Whitcomb Where in the United States would you be most likely to see a non-extinct pterosaur, what many Americans might call a “pterodactyl sighting?” Before Christmas day of 2017, I would’t have had an answer for you. I’ve been receiving emails and phone calls from across the country for […]

The still surface of Muncho Lake, in northern British Columbia, Canada

I recently got some news from Gerald McIsaac, my associate who has been searching for modern pterosaurs in northern British Columbia, Canada, for many years and gathering eyewitness reports. Here is part of what he said: One of the girls in the village was recently attacked by a pterodactyl. She had a campfire burning in […]

The Live Pterosaur Media Center Press Room has been online for many months, but apparently I’ve been neglectful, forgetting to explain it on this blog, so here is an introduction. Its use is not restricted to standard professional news media. If you have a blog or newsletter, feel free to use the reports, press releases, and […]

News Release – Cuban Pterodactyl Eyewitnesses

A new press release mentions four eyewitnesses of possible pterosaurs at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in the mid-twentieth century. Two of them have been mentioned before on this blog: Eskin Kuhn and Patty Carson. Pterodactyl in Cuba In February of 2010, Whitcomb gave Eskin C. Kuhn (living in Ohio) a surprise phone call, questioning him about […]

New Eyewitness Reports of Pterosaurs

Posted on

Pterosaur in Cuba Yesterday, I spoke by phone with Tom Carson, the brother of eyewitness Patty Carson. His 1966 sighting sighting, about one year after Patty’s, seems to have been a smaller creature of the same species. This brother and sister never spoke with each other about their sightings until 2011, after I began interviewing Patty […]

Final Color Sketch of Gitmo Pterosaur

Posted on

Patty Carson’s final sketch of the ropen of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, shows interesting details, as well as a serious facial expression; from my interviews with this eyewitness, I do not think she was intending to create an angry glare for the creature, but only an indication of an eye more like a bird’s eye than a […]

More Critics, Less Reasoning

Posted on

Early yesterday morning, November 30, 2010, I posted a short announcement on the “Cryptids on the Wing” forum of Cryptozoology.com. The quick, negative responses were no surprise to me, for I have received similar dismissals, for years, on this forum. The first criticism deserves attention here, as an example of bulverism. Aside from the image of […]

Misidentification or Live Pterosaurs?

Posted on

What’s wrong with the idea that sightings of apparent living pterosaurs are misidentifications of birds or bats? On the surface, it sounds reasonable; after all, our Western culture is drenched in the idea that all pterosaurs and dinosaurs became extinct many millions of years ago. But look just beneath the surface and we find problems. […]

Fossils

Foxes, paleontologists, and cryptids

Posted on

Please understand my intentions with the following humor, for I do not downplay the importance of paleontologists; they are essential, the experts in learning from fossils. But the fox has his or her own specialty and the paleontologist likewise. The point? Cryptids are outside paleontology and an apparent lack of fossils in certain categories of strata should not be […]

Introduction to living-pterosaur investigations

Posted on

The concept that pterosaurs continue to live in various areas of this planet has excited a few ardent cryptozoologists and many casual investigators. Not without controversy, the idea that some of the species not only survive in isolated rain forests in Papua New Guinea, but live in Australia, North America, Central America, South America, and Africa–that is […]
