Pterosaur Sightings Over Texas & Pennsylvania


“Seriously, I'm never the type to believe anything no matter how good it sounds unless I've experienced it firsthand. Well, during my high school years in deep south Texas in the late 80s, I was sitting outside on my grandmother's picnic table listening to her and her elderly neighbor lady friend at night talk about ghost stories there at the ranch where she lived. Right in front of her property was an old cemetery. I kept laughing at some of their stories and they'd scold me warning me to respect what they deemed to be true. It must have been around 9:00 PM that I heard a strong whiff of large wings flapping from the north heading over us southbound towards the cemetery. It was a full moon and as I looked up, I kid you not, I heard and saw a huge, dark-shaped silhouette of what looked like a pterosaur with the long ball tail fly over us about 50 to 70 feet above us. It measured around 15-20 feet from wing tip to wing tip and around 10-12 feet long from nose to tail. The wing flaps were strong like a "swoosh" every couple of seconds. I saw it fly quickly over the moonlight reflecting over its body above us and just like that it was gone as I heard its wings flap southward over the cemetery until I couldn't hear it anymore. Again, I don't believe things easily but this I saw and heard as my grandmother scolded me saying that the devil was out to get me for not respecting their true ghost stories.” blunthonest1

“I'm looking at this stuff because I saw something a couple of years ago (2016), a pterodactyl is exactly what I saw. It had the tail. I'm in Reading, Pennsylvania and at first I though I saw a Pelican but then I saw the tail and thought what the hell would a Pelican doing way up here in Pennsylvania? This is it, I honestly think these do exist and people are too preoccupied with everything else to take notice. Along with UFO's, I saw a huge football field sized triangular, totally silent craft - no sound whatsoever. This was way back in 1971 and half the city saw it and it was no damned TR3B, which I think the government made up to give an answer to the UFO anomalies. In other words, to shut people up!” Charles Fick

Upright Canines Observed in France


“In January 2018, I had an encounter with a bipedal wolf-like creature at night, near Nice (France) on the way home from work around 00h45. I told my story same night to my family and later to four friends. In January 2019, several people from the same area of my observation were awakened around 02:30 in the morning to powerful cries.

Another amazing thing, my wife, my son of 21 years and I, were awakened as well. They were 1 km away as were the neighboring houses. At the same time the Husky of the neighbor barked louder and was more excited then we have ever heard it on that night since it birth (4 years ago). It's a friend who told me the next afternoon on the phone. He was scared and was remembering my encounter a year ago. He explained that a lady next to her apartment felt like the creature was in her garden!” Alain Bgt

“It happened in April 2017. I live in the Paca (France) and one night I saw something really strange. It was about one o'clock in the morning, I was driving with my wife and we were going home. She was tired, so she was sleeping when it happened.

I live in a small village in the heart of the countryside and vineyards and at night, I often drive full high beams because we have a lot of game that can cross the road so I drive carefully. I arrived at the foot of the woods, and I saw two luminescent eyes on my right at the edge of the grass. I told myself right away it's a fox. So I slowed down to avoid difficulties. He decided to cross the road while I was at what, a hundred meters (I was not driving more than 60 km / h). I saw these eyes at the height of man, an indistinct and massive form. He sped away at high speed when I arrived at his spot. I pounded the gas! My wife woke up suddenly and asked what happened. I did not dare to tell her. A fox?

I do not know what it was but it gave me a blue jolt. It was the size of a bear because I saw the silhouette and it spun in the woods. It was a pretty massive animal. I saw him on the road between Villes-sur-Auzon and Mazan. where the green fences are. I never heard of testimony in the area and it was bigger than a Pyrenean shepherd style dog or even a St Bernard. As I remembered the facts, I had thought of a fox. We have wolves near Mont Ventoux but given its size, it was not a wolf. My observation only lasted a few seconds - one minute max to the time I arrived at his spot. A massive body that was straightened from the height of its size. We could have said a bear but there is none in the area. It was big, easily 2 meters high, considering the perspective of my vantage point. It was because when I started to distinguish his silhouette with the headlights, it went off at full speed in the opposite direction. I have not been to see the gendarmes, nor hunters because they would certainly have insinuated that I had too much booze.” JAL

Not a Bird...Too Big For a Bat


“I think I may have seen one in the middle of the night just south of Amarillo, Texas. I was driving down I-27 around 1:00 AM heading for Plainview when all of a sudden, something flew right across the grill of my 18 wheeler. It startled me. If it had been any closer I would've hit it. It was bluish grey in color and I got a good look at the wing. It didn't have feathers. I saw skin with bone underneath. It was too big to be a bat and with echolocation, no bat would fly in front of a truck. My best estimate is that from the leading edge to the trailing edge, the wing was a little over a foot wide. It wasn't a bird, it wasn't a bat, so I'm thinking it had to have been a pterosaur.” Mark Ward

Black Stickman

“Before I heard about this phenomenon. This was before the internet. A co-worker of mine said he was driving on a rural road in Cleveland County, North Carolina in the mid 90's. And at 45 mph he said a black stick man came gliding next to him about 7 feet tall. He went home got his wife and they went back and saw the stick figure near a tree line. Everybody at work except me ridiculed him for telling that story. It shocked me to hear this is a real phenomena and the close similarity of all the eyewitnesses. especially the gliding part.” C Beav

Ugly Green Face...Disappearing Tree

Hi Lon. I am a Portuguese lady, but now reside in Brisbane Australia. I enjoy doing mountain biking in my spare time and have been doing so for many years. I ride very well and I am a competent rider and raced MTB in my youth. Last Wednesday (May 1st) I was riding as usual and stopped for a drink of water and rest a bit, when I looked to the side and see a green face on the tree. The face was smaller than a person 1/3 and looked very ugly and menacing.

Just after I saw it suddenly my legs slipped so fast I did not noticed them moving. In a flash I was on the ground. I fell so fast I couldn't even realise what happened. It was surreal. It was like something or someone had pushed my legs but I didn't even noticed. Today I went riding again and the tree I saw the face wasn't there today. It doesn't exist. Was it all a mirage, camouflage?

I felt scared as it was not normal. I was also able to control the bike and not fall down but I was spooked. If anyone as any similar stories please let me know as I can't speak to anyone in fear that they think I am crazy. FP

Those people who write about cryptid beings are occasionally asked if they are also believers. I think anyone who researches and investigates the unexplained has a deep sense that our world is more than what has been scientifically proven. Linda Godfrey exemplifies matchless dedication and knowledge of modern-day monsters and legends. Her most recent title 'I Know What I Saw' sets the standard for experiencer encounters. I'm positive that some of these accounts will spark memories of strange events in your life. I highly recommend you take the time to enjoy this book. Lon.
