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-
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]

Medical Sciences in Central China has declared that he saw a prehistoric-
looking creature flying in New Guinea. . . .
