Of course “pterodactyl” is not the word; “pterosaur” is what people actually mean. But those featherless flying creatures, differing from bats completely (only resembling them as flyers without feathers), and portrayed as ancient extinct flying creatures—those pterosaurs are appearing to human residents of Ohio; they have been appearing in Ohio for years.
Long-tailed pterosaur of Antwerp
The Antwerp Bee-Argus newspaper carried a front-page report of an apparent pterosaur sighting.
“He described it like a pterosaur, according to a recently-published book, Live Pterosaurs in America.” The creature was reported “chasing sparrows as it flew over the Route 49 bridge [Maumee River] near Antwerp, Ohio.” The author found credibility in the testimony.
Minister sees pterosaur in Mount Vernon, Ohio
I happened to notice a creature in the sky. . . . to my estimation it appeared to have no feathers. It was a leathery grayish color. . . . [very unusual] was the tail: longer than most bird tails . . . with a diamond shaped point at the end. . . . I have been careful not to tell many people.
