The American author noticed similarities between Hennessy's description and that of a creature reported 500 miles to the west, near
Jonathan Whitcomb, the author of Searching for Ropens, and Live Pterosaurs in
Both the 1944 and 1971 sightings were in daylight and Whitcomb's book asserts that Rhamphorhynchoid pterosaurs live in
Although I don’t dispute the men saw something , I am not sure that it could the Rhamphorhynchoid pterosaurs that Whitcomb asserts it is. The world has changed so much that creatures would have had to evolve and would not look exactly the same as the fossil record. Plus bear in mind we can only guess a lot of the time what creatures looked like from fossils. Very few complete skeletons are found and often no tissue so colour and texture is often guesswork. There may be an unknown species of giant bat as some assert or it may be some evolved creature from the past but I doubt it would look exactly like a prehistoric creature after these millions of years. The world has been colder and polluted and the prey that this predator eats would have changed considerably . Prey changes to avoid predator and the predator than has to change. Maybe some more recent sightings will surface that will answer the conundrum.
