Manta Ray Versus Pterodactyl

A recent blog post (Frontiers of Zoology) by the cryptozoology researcher Dale Drinnon proclaims that many reported sightings of apparent pterosaurs come from a big oceanic Manta ray fish jumping out of the water. One problem with that interpretation, for pterosaur sightings worldwide, lies just beneath the surface: The great majority of such flying-cryptids were not above any major body of water.

What Flies Along Storm Channels?

If your backyard borders the San Gabriel River, you might want to put your Chihuahua indoors before the sun sets, if a recent eyewitness report from Lakewood, California, is true. Something predatory may be flying along storm channels in Southern California, and we’re not talking about a hawk or an owl. Strange to tell, but it seems to be a flying cryptid, as in “cryptozoology.”

Texas Marfa Lights

A strange phenomena has been gaining attention in this remote high desert of southwest Texas. Marfa Lights, at least the ones classified scientifically as “CE-III,” have defied scientific explanation for many years. A new study reveals interesting similarities with other flying lights observed around the world, resulting in a hypothesis that the “dancing” lights of Marfa come from the bioluminescence of a group of flying predators that may not yet be classified by science.

“Teradactyl” Expert

Some Americans refer to this feather-less flying creature as a “flying dinosaur” or a “prehistoric bird” or a “dinosaur bird.” It comes in two flavors: Rhamphorhynchoid (long-tailed) and Pterodactyloid (short-tailed).

Carbon-14 Shows Dinosaurs Lived Recently

  • Surprising Results From Radiometric Dating of Dinosaurs

One of the oral presentations in the 2012 Western Pacific Geophysics Meeting in Singapore surprised at least some of the members of the audience. Dinosaur bones from several different locations had been carbon-dated, and it appears those animals lived only tens of thousands of years ago, not many millions of years ago.

Evidence of Modern Pterosaurs or Ropens

Many persons in Western societies, including in the United States, are blind to ideas that run contrary to deeply-entrenched assumptions. Many have little or no belief in Bigfoot or other reported cryptids, so what about creatures that were supposed to be all dead, totally extinct by millions of years ago, even close to a hundred million years ago, for some Rhamphorhynchoid pterosaurs? If many Americans have never heard about sighting reports of apparent living pterosaurs, how could they be expected to believe that a partially decayed carcass was from a recently-living “pterodactyl?”

Chess in Movies

In the first Harry Potter film, chess plays an important part. Harry, Hermione, and Ron are searching for a magic stone to protect it from being stolen and used by the evil Lord Voldemort. The greatest obstacle is a giant chess set, in which enemy pawns will not let them pass before they play a dangerous game.

Recent Reports of Pterosaur Sightings

Reports of “flying dinosaurs” or “pterodactyls” have accelerated during the past year or so, probably because more and more eyewitnesses are becoming aware of the research of cryptozoologists like Garth Guessman and me, Jonathan Whitcomb.

Chess and childhood education

. . . Another aspect of chess competition relates to social development. When a reclusive child or teenager becomes interested in chess, the newly formed skills in tactics and strategy and be put to use by playing games with other people.

Do Dragons Live in Griffith Park?

In the first five months of 2013, a total of four apparent pterosaurs have been reported in two separate sightings over the Interstate-5 Freeway, just east of Griffith Park. Both sightings were reported to me directly from each of the two eyewitnesses.

Doubting Personal Sanity

Have you seen a live pterodactyl flying overhead (I know that sounds crazy)? My first advice is this: Don’t doubt your sanity; my second: Don’t take it upon yourself to convert the Western world to your discovery of non-extinct pterosaurs. Get acquainted with the other eyewitness sightings and then report your own encounter to a cryptozoologist who specializes in that kind of cryptid, not to put too sharp a point on it: report to me.

Reading to Children

What can give small children more incentive to learn to read than reading to them? When a pre-schooler sits on the lap of a parent and hears an interesting story for children, that child notices that the parent is reading.
