Pterosaurs Living in California

Accounts of living pterodactyls flying in California are not restricted to any particular part of the state: north, south, or central. I hope that we will receive more accounts like the following.

Pterosaur Sighting in Orange County, California

30 feet long, with 15-16 feet of that being a tail. He saw the creature fly “at low altitude,” in front of his car, over the road (Campus Drive), into the San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary, in daylight. . . . SNW (anonymous) had no view of any feet and no good view of the head. He noticed that during the creature’s flight the tail was straight, as if it was “stretched out to be measured.” A flange, close to the end of the tail, he described as “triangle-shaped.”

The man who saw that “flying dinosaur,” as some would call it, was driving down a street near Irvine, in Orange County, California. According to this online report, he is either a doctor or a lawyer or a policeman or a fireman, and he does not want his name publicized.

Nocturnal Pterosaurs in Southern California

. . . at about 10:30 p.m., near the corner of Burbank Blvd and Woodman in the city of Sherman Oaks, California . . . they saw a “very large, winged creature” gliding about 300 feet overhead. The woman described glowing or reflective portions of the wings; she described them to me in a way that suggested they were much dimmer than the bright flashes of ropens.

Live Pterosaurs in Northern California

Account in summer of 2011

A vague report came in about flying lights south-by-southwest of Shasta-Trinity National Forest, much closer to the coast. But the eyewitness gave an account more of his feelings than of what he had actually seen. If this eyewitness, in this recent sighting, is correct, the nocturnal flying creatures get close enough to react to his camera zoom.
