Cryptids: Jurassic Park Is Real-Or Is Thought By Others

Okay, when I posted about Coelocanths, I knew that people have sighted living prehistory-dinosaurs.  This is a story I like to call Jurassic Park Has Jumped Off The Screen

Our story begins 65 million years ago, in the Cretaceous period.  Big meteor hits Earth, see ya dinos!  Or so we think.  Fast forward to modern times.  Actually, 1944.  A man saw what seemed to be this:

Yes, a pterosaur.  We believe he saw a Ropen, a supposed living fossil.  They sometimes give off bioluminescence, or natural light giving off by certain animals.  Now, pterosaurs have been portrayed as several cryptids.  but on a bigger scale, there’s Mokele Mbembe.  He’s supposed to be a living sauropod.

And to end this story, the most killer of killers of most killer killers.  The Kasai Rex!  Of course, it’s based on the T-Rex.  But this photo is just a big lizard.  Seems to be fake.

Big Ears, Dontcha Think?

That wraps up the tale of the living dinosaurs.  Could these really exist, or are they just paranoia and legends.  Now, I’m off to watch some Monsterquest on the Ropen!

    That’s a nice picture of a pterosaur. The problem with that picture, however, is this: It is not exactly what Duane Hodgkinson saw in the jungle clearly west of Finschhafen, New Guinea, in 1944, for the creature was described with a tail “at least 10-15 feet long.” In other words, he saw a giant Rhamphorhynchoid pterosaur, notwithstanding most of these kinds of pterosaurs left fossils that were rather small.

    Okay, then. Because the Monsterquest description showed it as what most people interpret as the average pterosaur. Then again, Rhamphorhynchoids weren’t the only pterosaurs with tails. Earlier pterosaurs that weren’t related to that specific family existed, then lost their tails through evolution. I just don’t see how Triassic pterosaurs could be 10-15 feet long. The description could better fit a pterosaur like Ornithocheirus. That fits the size description, but I know for a fact that no pterosaur with tails ever grew that large. Still, I admire your knowledge of that specific sighting.
