Creationists (and perhaps a few others) have been searching for living pterosaurs in Papua New Guinea, where there are native legends about a luminescent "demon flyer" harassing remote villages at night. Whitcomb and other enthusiasts believe, or want to believe, that there are pterosaurs at large in the United States, as well. The eye-witnesses prefer to be anonymous or pseudonymous due to fear of ridicule. Whitcomb and his fellow researchers (some of whom claim to have seen pterosaurs themselves) have sometimes kept the locations of the purported sightings hidden. This means that scientists can't do much with their material, and other cryptozoologists or investigators of the paranormal might also feel left in the lurch. Whitcomb claims to be able to tell a hoax from the real thing, but he never explains how. To be honest, I don't think he can - I wonder what would happen if a nefarious sceptic would try to prove him wrong by fabricating an observation?
Many of the "pterosaur" observations are probably misidentifications of large herons, bats, kites or pterosaur models. Many have been made at night. Others have a certain occult feel, as when one eye-witness reported a huge pterosaur in the middle of Suburbia, but nobody else noticed! The creatures are biologically impossible. What do they eat? Where do they breed? How come bird-watchers aren't seeing them? Whitcomb believes that the pterosaurs eat nightjars or bats, but shouldn't this affect nightjar or bat behaviour?Read more ›
