Spanish Pterosaur

¿Es extinto, señor Pterosaur? Reports of a giant bird or “pterodactyl” in Spain made news some time ago. This was mentioned on the Cryptomundo blog.

Our astonishment was immense when we stepped out to the balcony to see the black silhouette of a bird of tremendous size. It perhaps measured between 3 and 5 meters, and I am not exaggerating. Numerous residents saw it and numerous comments were made the next day.

The word “pterodactyl” came up and one eyewitness, at least, estimated the wingspan at much greater than other estimates: 15 meters.

Pterosaur at a Music Festival

In Spain, “near los desert del palmas,” at a music festival one summer night in 2007, flying about 30-40 feet over the heads of a few music fans at the edge of the festivities, was a creature that had, instead of feathers, the color and apparent texture of suede. The eyewitness saw that it was unlike a bat for it had a long thin tail. He told me, “I haven’t been able to find any species of fruit bat ANYWHERE that has a long, straight tail . . .”

The eyewitness was sure that it was not a fruit bat.
