Thrilling accounts of live “pterodactyls” "Neither my brother or I was prone to being scared . . .  This night was different. . . . the creature was flying just  above the phone lines. It would go one direction, turn, and  swoop back. . . . The wingspan was huge, anywhere from  6-10 feet across." (Texas)   “. . . on a clear mid-afternoon in the fall  [1989] . . . [She]  saw something flying from her left, then passing in front  of her . . . 'It swooped down over the highway and back  up . . . as big as any car . . . no feathers.'" (S.C.)   “What caught my eye was the bright radiation like light  coming from the belly of this Pterodactyl looking animal.  I seen it fly right above us maybe 150-200 feet and this  thing wasn’t no bat; it was bigger with large wing span.”   (Southern California)   “I noticed a strange looking bird in the sky . . . like  something straight out of the dinosaurs era. It scared [me]  . . . What stood out was the long pointed head and . . . a  very long tail between the legs and with a ball shaped on  the end of it.” (Wisconsin)   “It was getting dark but there was plenty of light in the  sky when we saw what we believe to be a pterodactyle.  The wingspan seemed to be about 25’ to 30’ ft wide. It  was probably about 70’ to 80’ off the ground, flying over  a large tree in front of the house. I never saw the wings  flap; it just glided on air.” (Arkansas)   “I have been haunted for . . . years by what I saw in the  desert. I have never told anyone due to the fact that I was  afraid I would be thought nuts . . . I can't tell you what a  relief it is to know I am not alone.” (Anza Borrego Desert,  Southern California; the eyewitness was relieved to learn  that other Americans had also seen a pterosaur)   Pterodactyl Eats Bats

Learn the truth for yourself     You be the judge of each of these sighting reports.  Although the author has included each account because of  its own credibility, you decide what you think of each  one; although Whitcomb believes the overall eyewitness  evidence points to more than one species of pterosaurs  living in the U.S., you form your own opinions.  The Book and the Author   Jonathan Whitcomb, before and after  writing  "Searching  for Ropens, Living Pterosaurs in Papua New Guinea,"  received emails from many eyewitnesses of similar  creatures in the U.S. Four years after returning from his  expedition in Papua New Guinea, he started writing a new  nonfiction: Live Pterosaurs in America. Now you can  read of these encounters Americans have had in  California, Georgia, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Ohio,  and many other states. Read their own words about  apparent living pterosaurs.   Expanded third edition of book   This new edition gives you new evidence, more than was  in the first two editions. In particular, the Carson sighting  in Cuba greatly supports Eskin Kuhn’s account:   “I was only a child when I saw it . . . around six years old  . . . We were walking down near the boat yards, headed  home . . . Suddenly it sat up, as if it had been eating  something or resting. The head and upper part of its body,  about a third of the wings at the joint . . . All of us froze  for about five seconds, then it leaned to its left and took  off with a fwap fwap fwap sound . . . The skin was a  leathery, brownish reddish color. It had little [small] teeth,  a LOT of them.”        From a reader in Pennsylvania    “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 S. Reeder of  Pennsylvania; a reader of the first edition of the book)   From a twelve-year-old reader (five stars): “This book is a great book! This book contains a lot of  sightings and information on living pterosaurs. I highly  recommend this book to anyone who is interested in  living pterosaurs.” (A Kid’s Review: for the first edition  of Live Pterosaurs in America;   From a reader in Wisconsin:   “. . . there is something here for everyone . . . Once you  start to reading it you won’t want to put it down . . .  amazing and awe inspiring . . . Out of five stars, I’ll give  it all five.” (From Isaac Elekom, who read a proof copy of  the third edition: Five Stars)   Five Stars From “StrangeDream”   “I couldn't put this book down. It is absolutely fascinating  to read about eyewitness accounts of the people who have  seen these creatures. To learn about these testimonies  from such an open minded perspective is refreshing in the  extreme! . . . I highly recommend this book to anyone!  People should know the truth about what is going on. No  one ever hears anything about this unless they conduct  extremely specific internet searches, even then,  information is minimal. Jonathan Whitcomb needs to  write more books!” (for second edition) 
U. S. Marine Eskin Kuhn describes his sighting in detail, in this third edition of the nonfiction book (ropen sighting at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, 1971)
Patty Carson saw the strange flying creature at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba around 1965 and sketched it more recently. Other eyewitnesses in Cuba confirm that this flying animal is real and looks exactly like a long-tailed pterosaur would.
