One of the Strangest Phenomena in Cryptozoology: Still-Living Pterodactyls

Even the title of this article is a strange one, never mind its content, too! It’s a fact – and a very odd fact – that now and again someone will surface with an incredible story. Namely, that they had seen a pterodactyl. Before we go any further, here’s some background on pterodactyls. Live Science say: “Pterodactyl is the common term for the winged reptiles properly called pterosaurs, which belong to the taxonomic order Pterosauria. Scientists typically avoid using the term and concentrate on individual genera, such as Pterodactylus and Pteranodon. There are at least 130 valid pterosaur genera, according to David Hone, a paleontologist at Queen Mary University of London. They were widespread and lived in numerous locations across the globe, from China to Germany to the Americas. Pterosaurs first appeared in the late Triassic Period and roamed the skies until the end of the Cretaceous Period (228 to 66 million years ago)…” Now, with that said, let’s have a look at the cryptozoological side of the pterodactyl. Although many people in the field of Cryptozoology prefer to focus on what could be termed fairly down-to-earth subjects (Nessie, Bigfoot, the Abominable Snowman, and so on) there are some cases that seem to go far…
