Ohio pterosaur sightings

The Antwerp Bee-Argus newspaper (Aug 5, 2009 issue) published an article about a young man’s two daylight sightings of what seem to have been the same apparent Rhamphornynchoid pterosaur, seen in 2002 and 2003. “He described it like a pterosaur, according to a recently-published book, Live Pterosaurs in America. It was reported to be chasing sparrows as it flew over the Route 49 bridge near Antwerp, Ohio. . . . The animal appeared to be ten feet long, including a long tail.” Two things indicate that it was no bird: no feathers and teeth.

But there is another report of a living pterosaur in Ohio. According to Live Pterosaurs in America, a minister was driving near Mount Vernon, in 2005, when he saw a long-tailed featherless creature flying overhead. The tail had a “diamond-shaped point at the end.”
