Duane Hodgkinson, in New Guinea in 1944, saw what he described as a “pterodactyl.” More than half a century later he completed a questionairre and was interviewed several times by two cryptozoologists. In recent years he has been a flight instructor near Livingston, Montana, having many thousands of hours of flying time: a credible eyewitness.
Brian Hennessy, in New Guinea in 1971, saw what he described as a “prehistoric” creature flying overhead. More than three decades later he completed a questionairre and was interviewed by one cryptozoologist. In recent years he has been a psychologist at a medical university in China: a credible eyewitness.
It now seems that Hodgkinson and Hennessy saw the same species of living pterosaur, with a long thin beak, a long tail, and horn-like head appendage (head crest). The cyptid has been named the Hodgkinson-Hennessy ropen. Of course, the creature is still unclassified by Western science, not listed in a biology textbook but living within the realm of cryptozoology.Tagged with: 1944 • Brian • crest • Duane • head appendage • Hennessy • Hodgkinson • New Guinea • pterodactyl • pterosaur • ropen • species
