Are There Pterosaurs in Louisiana?
You may have heard that Louisiana is home to werewolves to vampires, zombies, ghosts, and the occasional Rougarou - but get ready to put all of that behind you, because there is a brand-new crypto-creature in the Bayou State!
The mighty Pterosaur was (is) a leathery-winged flying dinosaur from the late Triassic / Cretaceous period that some believe is alive and well today! Reported sightings are even on the rise in North Carolina, with a reported sighting just 15 days ago in Raleigh. According to the website Charlottestories.com, vet-tech in training Cynthia Lee claims she saw a featherless flying creature sporting a head crest.and a long tail featuring a diamond shaped bulb at the end of the tail during last week's snow.
Here in Louisiana, there have been 4 such sightings reported since 1994. 2 over the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway bridge, one in Slidell, and another in New Llano. But don't take my word for it, please check out the work of a professional. Might I suggest cryptozoology author Jonathan D. Whitcomb. Jonathan has been studying the prehistoric throwbacks more than "10,000 hours" and is a self-proclaimed "living-pterosaur expert."
According to Matt Cartmill, professor emeritus of evolutionary anthropology at Duke University - it's possible for these dino-birds to have somehow survived all of this time. Possible, but not likely. He ranks it slightly more possible than unicorns.
