If you’re interested in the subject of cryptozoology, you’ll know that a wealth of coverage has been given just recently to a controversial piece of footage that alleges to show nothing less than a living, breathing, and flying pterodactyl. In the skies of Idaho, USA, no less. People have asked me what I think it shows. Well, I think it’s a great piece of film. It’s very interesting. And it makes for deep debate. But, I don’t think it shows a pterodactyl. I do think it’s a fine and entertaining piece of work though! And hats off to whoever made it!
It’s important to note, however, that one of the reasons why the footage has generated so much interest is because sightings of creatures that appear to be pterodactyls are surprisingly common. This, despite the fact that the beast is supposed to have become extinct millions of years ago. In other words, just because someone may have produced a fairly impressive piece of special-effects footage, doesn’t necessarily mean that such things don’t still exist. Or does it? Well…that depends to what extent you are willing to believe that creatures from the (very) distant past may still be with us.
Certainly, there’s one thing we can all agree on when it come to this debate, and regardless of which side of the fence we sit on. Namely, there’s no shortage of reports. In fact, within the field of cryptozoology they are overflowing.
