There are now three living-pterosaur investigations
happening in at
least two West Coast states of the U.S.. As far as I know, none
of the persons involved have yet overlapped observations
three locations; each location has its own team. Investigations #1 & #3
have one thing in common: A key point that got
them started was non-
team persons (not cryptozoologists) observing, in daylight, a large long-
tailed featherless flying creature
that suggested a ropen.
The first involves cryptozoologists that included the late Scott Norman
and his associates
Garth Guessman, David Woetzel, and several others.
The location is still secret. (see Newsletter
The second involves
three or more men who have had at least one possible
ropen sighting at another secret location. One creature flew about 30 feet
their heads, a little past midnight. The wingspan was about 4 feet.
"The wings were almost the same as a bat. However it had a long
beak." The creature flew too fast to be photographed.
My own investigation is of a sighting at a wildlife
refuge in Southern
California in August of 2007. I will reveal the location in September
of 2008. This third investigation involves
an apparent ropen with a length
of about "30 feet." This differs from the first two investigations in that
I am not so much looking
for the creatures as I am looking for more
eyewitnesses of a featherless creature that was said to be flying,
in daylight, near a
city (but over a wetlands area) one year ago.
