Book About Live Pterosaurs in Australia

A new cryptozoology book, in digital form rather than paperback or hardback, is now available on Amazon. The point is that not all pterosaurs are extinct. Live Pterosaurs in Australia and in Papua New Guinea is about 76 pages long, with the following chapters:

  1. How can Pterosaurs be Alive?
  2. The Finschhafen Pterodactyl
  3. The Bougainville Creature
  4. The Lake Pung Encounter
  5. Another Expedition on Umboi Island
  6. The Perth Creature
  7. Other Sightings in Australia
  8. Expedition of 2006
  9. Other Sightings in Papua New Guinea
  10. Conclusion

The following was taken from the Introduction:

Common persons in the southwest Pacific have seen something big flying overhead, something uncommon, unlike any bird or bat. This is not fantasy, it’s nonfiction, so let’s begin with our feet on the ground, take one step at a time.

I don’t ask you to launch your imagination to fly with every story about a live “pterodactyl.” When somebody sends me an email about a strange flying creature, I don’t jump onto the first paragraph as if the creature had to have been a living pterosaur; neither do I dismiss the whole account when I first encounter something unexpected. Please do the same: Judge not too quickly, either to one side or the other.

I have found, after many years of questioning eyewitnesses, that some accounts cannot be dismissed as misidentified birds or bats or as hoaxes. Keep the door open to discovering something for yourself.

For information about extinction:

Pterosaur Extinction and Australia

Why is the universal extinction dogma so deeply entrenched into our Western culture? Why must all species of pterosaurs be extinct? This extreme bias needs to be addressed, and quoting from my newest nonfiction book

For information about the size of some of these flying creatures:

Biggest Pterosaurs

Of course we’re talking about modern live pterosaurs, not fossils of winged creatures that lived millions of years ago.

Giant Flying Creature in Australia

No Feathers on Flying Creature

How do large featherless flying creatures avoid human detection in modern times? Sometimes they don’t. People see what they thought could not exist when that kind of “pterodactyl” thing flys overhead. Australia is one of the places people see them.

Pterosaur Sighting in Queensland

From the recently published ebook Live Pterosaurs in Australia and in Papua New Guinea:

Kathy was driving [at about 8: 30] at night, with her thirteen-year-old daughter, when the huge creature flew over the car:

“The wings were so big. Black bat leather like.”

“One wing covered the car . . . you could see, just the underneath.”

“No feathers just leather.”

“We saw it at Mt Coolum Sunshine Coast . . . one hill away from Centenary Heights Rd.”

New Book on Pterosaurs in Australia

SFR, at least in the first edition, is cross genre: cryptozoology and Christian believes on the Bible. LPAPNG is strictly cryptozoology, with only a brief mention of creationist explorers.

Flying Dragons in Australia

Few Australians call it a “dragon,” when they see a giant flying creature, or a large one, with no sign of feathers but with a long tail. I know of one American who declared seeing a dragon in Australia decades ago. But that word is unpopular with Australians who consider reporting their encounters, for they usually prefer “pterodactyl” or “pterosaur.”

Bulverism and Science

Don’t avoid an issue by putting down the person who brought up the subject. Avoid of bulverism, a term invented by the British author C. S. Lewis. If a subject is worth consideration, it should be discussed, but if you disagree with somebody, don’t turn the discussion into how your opponent is foolish or stupid or blind or ill-intentioned.

I remember reading something somewhere, and it was years ago, about a pterosaur sighting in South Carolina. A skeptic was insisting that it was impossible. He said that if such a large pterosaur were alive in the United States, then somebody would have seen it. What faulty reasoning was that! He read the report about somebody seeing a live pterosaur and then insists that the animal could not exist or else somebody would have seen it.

Science has been known to be slow. Read very slow. It waits, considers, and waits a bit more and considers things again. But eyewitnesses keep coming up, people keep seeing pterosaurs flying around. There will eventually be a scientific discovery and it will shock many skeptics. I can hardly wait for that.

Pterodactyls and Bulverism

When someone publishes a web site with a URL that includes the words “stupid” and “lies,” and the point of the site is to ridicule those who promote the idea of living dinosaurs or living pterosaurs, “bulverism” probably fits.

Pterodactyls and the Moons of Jupiter

What’s wrong with the existence of a live pterodactyl? Some skeptics avoid attacking that idea directly but instead sneak around for an attack against those who most loudly proclaim that those flying creatures are still alive.


"Live Pterosaurs in America" third edition - nonfiction cryptozoology

True encounters with modern pterosaurs – Live Pterosaurs in America, 3rd edition – available on Amazon

From the back cover of this cryptozoology book:

Discover for yourself these amazing yet true stories and why they are usually absent from news headlines. Learn of the searches and research done by a few American cryptozoologists who stand up to ridicule and proclaim the truth. At least two pterosaur species, (quite uncommon, mostly nocturnal) still live in North America.

The author, Jonathan Whitcomb, the world’s most prolific writer on living pterosaurs, here shares with you years of interviews with Americans who have encountered the rare nocturnal flying creatures whose descriptions make them nothing other than
pterosaurs, despite extinction dogma. Read the eyewitness accounts and analysis for yourself.

While Driving, Watch for Pterodactyls

If automobile traffic is not dangerous enough, many sightings of pterosaurs occur when the eyewitness is driving a car. That’s probably because when we’re not driving we’re in a building, at home or at work or shopping or watching a movie in a theater. When we drive, we are watching the scene ahead and that is usually out of doors.

Somebody once reported a pterodactyl flying in front of an elderly couple who were driving in Trinity National Forest in California. Other drivers in the United States have also reported what technically should be called a “pterosaur.”

A few years ago, a lady was driving to work, through a forested area of Georgia, northeast of Atlanta, when she was startled to see a huge long-tailed creature fly in front of her car. More recently, she has allowed her real name to be associated with that sighting account: Sandra Paradise. Many years earlier, another lady saw something similar fly very close in front of her windshield as she was driving in a remote area of South Carolina.

Flying Dinosaur in Georgia

They were shocked to see a “flying dinosaur.” It was low enough that the woman was sure that it was not just a large bird. Her older son called it a “pterodactyl.”

Driver Sees Pterosaur in Kansas

I could not believe my eyes as I immediately thought of a prehistoric bird when I saw it. It must have had a wing-span of 16-20 feet.
