I recently learned of a documentary film being produced for possible release into theaters in 2012; with encounters with strange creatures in the United States being the theme, reports of living pterosaurs are included. I was grateful to be invited to be a part of the production preparations. From my preliminary research into the previous documentaries created by this producer, I believe that this new production will give a fair and open perspective with respect being shown for the eyewitnesses.
Perhaps the most significant evidence for the general rule that modern pterosaurs are nocturnal is the connection with bioluminescence. Many of the repeated-sighting areas are where flying lights are observed, for example, in Papua New Guinea. But strange flying lights at night are also seen in North America, including Texas.
“Could Marfa Lights be nocturnal flying scavengers? I don’t mean to put down the bat hunting hypothesis, regarding the splittings and rejoinings that may have given rise to the comment from residents about “dancing devils.” That may have a place, during seasons when bats are about around Marfa, Texas . . . But bats are unlikely to be about during the colder winter nights, and some of the stranger Marfa Lights are seen on some of those nights.”
“One of the flashes took off from a big tree overhanging the river and made a kind of flashing coma turn. Many flashes were parallel to the river. . . . there were many fish . . . Prime hunting grounds for fish-eating birds. Only these things fish at night with bioluminescence.”
“No evidence proves universal extinctions, but ample eyewitness evidence supports the concept that some supposedly ‘ancient’ creatures still live, including pterosaurs.”
