Pterodactyl Reported in Papua New Guinea A   study   by   an   American   cryptozoologist   suggests   that   the   "pterodactyl" described   by   the   World   War   II   veteran   Duane   Hodgkinson   was   a   real creature, of a species living in coastal areas of Papua New Guinea. . . . Whitcomb   disputes   the   idea   that   sightings   of   giant   “pterodactyls”   are   only misidentifications   of   Flying   Fox   fruit   bats.   .   .   .   the   ropen   is   said   to   eat   fish and to have a long tail, unlike the Flying Fox. . . . Glowing Creatures Videotaped In Papua New Guinea A   physicist   [Clifford   Paiva],   who   examined   video   footage   of   two   strange lights   that   explorers   think   are   bioluminescent   pterosaurs,   declares   that   the glow   is   not   from   meteors,   lanterns,   campfires   or   an   airplane.   Paul   Nation, of   Granbury,   Texas,   videotaped   the   lights   one   night,   in   November,   2006, in a remote mountainous area of the mainland of Papua New Guinea. . . . Paul    Nation's    2006    sightings    make    his    expedition    stand    out    from    all previous   living-pterosaur   expeditions   from   1993   through   2004.   He   saw eight   flights   of   the   nocturnal   creatures:   low   altitude   over   the   mountain ridges, far northwest of Port Moresby . . . Reports of living pterosaurs in the U.S.A. not hoaxes "Hoaxes    are    disproved,"    declares    Jonathan    Whitcomb,    author    of    the nonfiction   book,   "Live   Pterosaurs   in America." After   compiling   data   from reports   collected   from   early-2004   to   mid-2009,   from   eyewitnesses   across the   United   States,   he   found   three   kinds   of   evidence   disproving   any   hoax explanation. Pterodactyl-like creatures on New Britain Island Leathery-skinned   creatures   with   pointed   head   crests   and   bird-like   beaks fly   over   the   interior   of   a   tropical   island   in   Papua   New   Guinea,   according to   three   American   eyewitnesses   who   worked   in   a   medical   mission   there. With   wingspans   estimated   between   eight   and   twelve   feet,   the   pterosaur like   creatures   are   said   to   glide,   in   daylight,   over   valleys   in   central   New Britain Island . . . Unmasking a Flying Predator in Texas For    generations,    the    mystery    lights    of    Marfa,   Texas,    have    entertained residents   with   their   strange   dancing.   On   some   warmer   nights,   a   ball   of light   seems   to   split   into   two,   which   will   separate   and   fly   away   from   each other   before   turning   around   and   flying   back   together.   They   have   recently been linked to flying lights in the southwest Pacific . . . Pterodactyl in mid-20th-Century Cuba Two   large   long-tailed   flying   creatures,   apparent   pterosaurs,   caught   the Marine’s   attention.   He   later   reported   that   they   were   “flying   together   at   low altitude,   perhaps   100   feet,   very   close   in   range   from   where   I   was   standing, so   that   I   had   a   perfectly   clear   view   of   them.”   .   .   .   He   had   no   idea   that anybody else had seen such a creature. [sighting by Eskin Kuhn] A Psychologist saw a Living Pterosaur A psychologist who sometimes works for the Chongqing University of Medical Sciences in Central China has declared that he saw a prehistoric- looking creature flying in New Guinea. . . . ###
