Living Pterosaur in Georgia, USA

By living-pterosaur expert Jonathan Whitcomb

A few days ago, I received an email from a lady who wants to remain anonymous:

I saw this flying creature in the winter of 1999 in Roswell, GA while I was walking out to my car in my apartment complex. I saw a shadow, looked up and it was gigantic and my mind had a hard time making sense of it. The closest thing I could compare it to in that split second was a pelican but it’s face was shaped differently and it was absolutely enormous. Years later I casually mentioned it in front of my boss and her husband and her husband looked weird all of a sudden and asked where I had seen it and I said Roswell, GA and his wife said that he had see one there in the same town and then the husband changed the subject.

She later sent me another email:

I remember that after the face threw me off, as not being one of the closest animals I could compare it to, a pelican, it’s face was longer and not as gentle looking, and I also noticed that it’s feet had claws or talons and I knew that they did not look like pelican feet. I did not notice a tail at all. But it all happened so quickly. The apartments where I was living at the time were brand new and they were near wooded areas but the strange thing is that when I saw the shadow on the asphalt I though it had to be a low flying plane or something because the shadow was so large but then when I looked up and saw it I was truly shocked . . .

We also invite people to become aware that at least three scientific papers have been published on the subject of modern pterosaurs.


Missing Children Found in Caves

This two-and-a-half-year-old boy was found in a cave in New South Wales, Australia, in May of 1954, after he became missing from the family’s front yard the previous day. I learned about this case from the book Missing 411 The Devil’s in the Detail, by David Paulides.


How can Modern Pterosaurs Remain Hidden?

It was a fledgling mocking bird, not yet able to fly. It was trying to hide in the flower garden near the front door of a family child care facility. Strange to tell, that baby bird was seen by only one person that week, although many parents and children had walked past that part of the flower garden, countless times missing the fledgling; the bird was only inches from people who overlooked it. And it was not a large flower garden, by any means.


Long-tailed flying creature in Georgia

As it lept out from the woods, I saw it from below, and the tail was very long with a shape on the end. Its wings were probably half-spread and I saw several dark thin horizontal bands across the belly. . . . As it crossed my path, in front and slightly above me, I saw it had a head that was curved, like a hammer; the head had a crest on the top.


Living pterosaurs in Georgia

For years people in Georgia have seen flying things unlike birds, sometimes creatures with long tails and no feathers and too big to be a bat. Sometimes a person will notice something like a head crest at the back of the creature’s head . . .
