Of course news reports like this are not so new: live pterosaurs in Texas. But this nonfiction book gives page after page of detailed
interviews, and detailed analysis, and comparisons between sightings: all this from one of the world's leading experts on living-
"We noticed something flying around across the road . . . the creature was flying just above the phone lines. It would go one
direction, turn, and swoop back. The shape was wrong for any large bird of the area, and the size was much too large to be any bat
. . . The wingspan was huge, anywhere from 6-10 feet across. We watched the thing for maybe twenty minutes or so . . . I get little
chills just writing about it now.
"This was alive, and watching us, and very, very scary (& I don’t scare easily)." [San Antonio, Texas, about 1986]
And what about the other states where eyewitnesses report seeing live pterosaurs? What about California, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas,
Georgia, Florida, South and North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Ohio, Michigan, Kansas, and other states? The more credible sightings
are included in "Live Pterosaurs in America," not the most fantastic ones. And these many sightings
span many years.

Chapter Six is devoted entirely to the Marfa Lights. Before the publication of the second edition of
"Live Pterosaurs in America,"
very little had been written about the possibility that these strange lights in southwest Texas could be made by some unclassified
species of bioluminescent predators: nocturnal flying creatures that hunt, among other things, the Big Brown Bat that is commonly
found in parts of Texas and Mexico.
This chapter of the second edition of Whitcomb's book delves into this possibility by showing
how the non-living explanations fail to address strange "dancing" behaviors. The light splittings and rejoinings may be one of the
predators' techniques for attracting insects that attract bats. After the insects have congregated around the glowing predators,
those creatures separate for awhile; when bats come to feast on those insects, those larger flying predators return to feast on bats.

In the appendix, details of Eskin Kuhn's 1971 sighting in Cuba are revealed. He observed two pterosaurs flying nearby in clear daylight.
Early in 2010, he was interviewed by the author and found to be highly credible.This U. S. Marine stands by his testimony: He saw
what he saw.
"Pterodacftyl" is a word often used by many Americans, even though it is technically not the correct term.
