I received the following comments in reference to the Pterosaur Sighting - Central Arkansas:
First of all: I am college degree holder in Anthropology. Also did field investigation for MUFON in last 80s and into mid 90s. Currently a private paranormal investigator. My brother (whom had the sighting as well) is also former MUFON/NICAP 1970s and currently Vice President for a Fortune 500 company in the IT field.
I’ve seen it as well as he.
We were vacationing in Panama City Beach, Florida and had decided to boat out to Shell Island Nature Preserve arriving just an hour before Sunset. Sunset came and went and just before darkness began to fall we returned to the boat which we had to wade to from shore. We had to more it 20 feet off shore for fear of getting caught on a sand bar. This was Oct 22, 2002. Clear day in the 80s. As we waded out to the boat and were getting in. Saw the craziest sight all the birds and wildlife took off at once and scattered in every direction from the spot we had just come. The sound and sight immediately drew our full attention. SAW the thing waddle out from the bush! This was a small one 7-8 feet tall (judging from the bush height along the shore). Our camera’s were in the boat since we had gone to Shell Island for a little metal detecting beach combing.
It looked directly at us! And paced back and forth along the shore for approx. distance of 30 feet in total. We didn’t wait around to get a better view of it! Once we saw the head crest.
It was a Pterosaur, period! Not something I want to see again in this lifetime because its Momma will be at least 18- 20 feet tall.
People are not reporting them because. 1. In flight there is no way of judging length and they may very well be soaring at height were they simply appear as small plane or other bird. 2. It simply to bizarre for the mind to comprehend and thus the sighting is pigeon holed into some type of logical rational explaining. Instead of a freaking dinosaur. - NightShade09
If the sightings only happened in the USA on one or two occasions then I can understand the tendency to dismiss the reports as those of remote controlled engineering creations causing confusion for any unwitting observers. But this ISN'T the case. There's hundreds of these documented sightings. It's close to unbelievable in the mainstream modern western world but the evidence suggests that a bizarre creature which once mimicked a Pterosaur millions of years ago has out-lived it's prehistoric companion. These sightings ARE REAL. - Alan L.
