Pterosaurs have been called “dinosaur birds” by some Americans, although “pterodactyl” is also common. From what we have learned from many fossils, those flying creatures used to be common. Not any more. But according to certain eyewitnesses, they are not extinct. According to certain cryptozoologists, they are alive but uncommon.
But the “dinosaur bird” (if that’s what you want to call it) is no bat, for the body form of both Rhamphorhynchoids and Pterodactyloids differs greatly from that of bats. And neither a bat nor a pterosaur is much like a bird.
According to Susan Wooten (of South Carolina) and Aaron Tullock (of Texas) and Eskin Kuhn (of Ohio) pterosaurs are very much alive. Those three eyewitesses have given out their names after being interviewed by the same cryptozoologist: Jonathan Whitcomb (of California). And not one of those three witnesses are dishonest or insane or even mistaken in their interpretations, according to Whitcomb.
Dinosaur birds, by whatever name, are becoming known as “ropens” by cryptozoologists, and this creature has now become an established cryptid, even though it is not yet acknowledged or classified by most biologists.
