Live Pterosaurs in America by Whitcomb --- This publication is the “Bible” of living- pterosaur sighting reports of encounters in the 48 contiguous states of the USA. Live Pterosaurs in Cuba  Although the U. S. Marine called the two flying creatures “pterodactyls,” rather than “flying dinosaurs,” the point is the same: They were living animals that were quite obviously pterosaurs, long assumed to be long-extinct, according to standard models popular in the United States. In the words of U. S. Marine Eskin Kuhn, “The rhythm of their large wings was very graceful, slow . . . The Pterosaurs I saw had a long tail trailing behind . . . The head was disproportionately large, with a long crest at the back, long bill, long neck . . .”  Sketch drawn by Eskin Kuhn, the 1971 eyewitness of the two pterosaurs that he had observed at Gitmo, Cuba Flying Dinosaurs Near Winder, Georgia Their extinction was always an assumption. Now we know the truth. Called by some Americans "flying dinosaurs," pterosaurs, in modern times, appear to be at least somewhat rare, for they are rarely reported by eyewitnesses. But contrary to the proclamations of some critics, the rarity of reports of eyewitnesses is from the ridicule that many of them face after telling people what they saw; it is not generally from insanity or dishonesty. In developed countries, the extinction of all species of dinosaurs and pterosaurs has been dogmatically taught to us from early childhood. This indoctrination, in the United States, makes it difficult for eyewitnesses to talk; we hear little about flying dinosaurs.  Extant, not extinct Living, not dead Not a hoax Pterosaurs, also known as “pterodactyls” Flying Dinosaurs Seen World- Wide, Including in the U.S.A. What do these persons have in common: Duane Hodgkinson, Gideon Koro, Susan Wooten, Brian Hennessy, Mesa Augustin, Aaron Tullock? Each has seen a large flying creature that is much more like a pterosaur than anything else. Some of them have their experiences documented in the nonfiction book Live Pterosaurs in America. Most of them do not call them “flying dinosaurs,” but they know the meaning of the phrase. The "flying dinosaur" of Papua New Guinea is often called "ropen." It seems to be a large Rhamphorhynchoid pterosaur, far larger than any of the fossils of those long-tailed Rhamphorhynchoids known, at least into the beginning of the twenty-first century. The wingspan can be as big as twenty-five feet or more; the tail length, twelve feet of more. Other strange flying creatures have been associated with the ropen, with sightings in Australia, the Philippines, and in the islands of other parts of the southwest Pacific. In Papua New Guinea, some of the names for the ropen are: Indava Wawanar Seklo-bali Kor Duwas
