What would you call an extant (living) pterosaur? Name it what you will, but it probably will depend on where you are from. If you live around Manus Island in northern Papua New Guinea, you would call it “kor.” Further to the south on Umboi Island, call it “ropen.” Other names in Papua New Guinea include “indava,” “duwas,” and “seklo-bali.”
What if you live in the United States? Some eyewitnesses of living pterosaurs would rather forget what they saw, for they fear the obvious name: “pterodactyl.” One eyewitness in the Anza Borrego Desert in Southern California was troubled by the word his friend used for what they observed soaring in the distance (“pterodactyl”). He said something like, “it has to be a kite or something” (from the nonfiction book Live Pterosaurs in America). So why did that man choose to leave the area before nightfall? If there ever were such a thing, kite flying in that remote desert has long ago become extinct. His friend has no doubt: They saw the real thing.
You don’t need to be crazy to see a living pterosaur, regardless of what you call it. Brian Hennessy, a psychologist from Australia who has lived in China for years, used the word “prehistoric” for a flying creature seen by an eyewitness on Bougainville Island, New Guinea, many years ago. The eyewitness did not go to Hennessy for counseling; Hennessy himself is the eyewitness. The point? You don’t have to be crazy to see a living pterosaur. A psychologist is the least likely person to unknowingly hallucinate anything and Hennessy was not alone when the large “prehistoric” creature flew overhead.
Living pterosaurs have been reported in the United States. This nonfiction cryptozoology book may appear shocking, but it logically explains why these wonderful flying creatures have seemed to have remained hidden in North America for so many years. The eyewitness testimonies have been analyzed individually and collectively. The result? Astonishing! Read the many eyewitness sighting reports; buy the nonfiction book Live Pterosaurs in America, on Amazon or elsewhere. What’s more, please consider: Your purchase of this cryptozoology book shall help support future research. Yes! You can enjoy the satisfaction that you have contributed to further *investigations, by your purchase, while you learn about these wonderful living creatures.
In addition, the book explains the cultural challenges faced by the American eyewitnesses. Read the words of these ordinary persons living in California, New Mexico, Texas, Florida, Ohio, Kansas, Michigan, and many other states.
One reader said, “I found this book very interesting. . . . The problem with science is that we think we know it all and that is far from reality. This book shows courage to continue the search. If you have an interest in cryptozoology you should read this.” (Dale Reeder, Pennsylvania)
The first edition was a number-one best-selling book, by far, on Amazon.com for nonfiction books about living pterosaurs. (late 2009 through mid-2010, compared with Searching for Ropens, Dinosaurs Dead or Alive, and Big Bird.) Find out why it is more popular; read it yourself.
