Live Pterodactyl April Fool’s Joke?

April 1st, 2013 by Nathaniel Coleman AKA Jonathan Whitcomb Leave a reply »

A press release dated March 30, 2013 (Saturday) would be expected to be noticed on Monday, April 1, 2013. With a title of “Modern Pterodactyls and Religion,” it looks like it may be an April Fool’s joke. Look again. It’s one of many news releases published over several years, about living pterosaurs, and the release dates are scattered over the calendar, not just around April 1st.

Pterosaur sighting research is still not as popular as investigating of Bigfoot encounters, but it’s catching up. The following is just a sampling of press releases related to pterosaur sightings:

Two Dragon Hunters in Southern California

Recounts the expeditions of two residents of California: Garth Guessman and Jonathan Whitcomb, who have been searching for modern pterosaurs and interviewing eyewitnesses for ten years

Not all Biology Professors Fight Modern Flying Dinosaurs

It seems most biology professors prefer to keep out of a fight, but a very few of them almost take sides with what non-professors might call “flying dinosaurs” – This release deserves a quotation:

A recent survey of biology professors in the USA reveals not all of them are completely convinced that all species of pterosaurs became extinct by 65 million years ago. Although less than 2% of the professors replied to the survey, the response to the question of the possibility of modern living pterosaurs ranged from 0% to 5%, averaging 1.5%.

Live Pterosaur in Georgia

Jonathan Whitcomb reports pterosaur sightings in Winder, Georgia, and in Towns County of that state and compares the flying creatures to the one reported to have been observed in Cuba many years ago, at Guantanamo Bay.

Pterosaurs Alive in Australia

This release includes a brief account of a lady in Queensland, Australia, who was with her thirteen-year-old daughter when they encountered a huge flying creature.

Pterosaur Sightings in Arkansas and Missouri

My father and I saw a Huge, featherless bird in Arkansas . . . We were sitting on big rocks at a cliff about 300 foot above the river when it flew out just under us and we watched it all the way down toward the river . . . [It had a] wing span of maybe 8 ft and had a large head.
