Giant Pterosaur in Queensland, Australia

On May 28, 2011, in Uncategorized, by Jonathan Whitcomb

At about 8:30 one night, Kathy was driving towards the ocean, about sixty miles north of Brisbane, Australia, accompanied by her thirteen-year-old daughter, when they were shocked at the giant pterosaur that flew in front of the windshield.

We saw it at Mt Coolum Sunshine Coast of Australia, one hill away from Centenary Heights Rd. . . . We heard it coming . . . the swoosh noise. . . . All we saw was a black shape coming from the trees; the next thing we saw was one wing over the windscreen [windshield].  It crossed [in front of the car]. I couldn’t see the road for a moment, just wing covering the entire windscreen. The body was over the car and its other wing [was] over the back [of the car]. We could not see the body . . . [only]  the wing. [The wing was] bat like leather [with] veins and leather stretched over a bone structure. That was dinosaur era.

Was  I meant to see this (that kind of feeling)? This thing was bigger than us in every way. We saw it flap its wings once. *swoosh . . . a prehistoric winged creature. I have looked around Mt Coolum for its home. I believe that is where it’s home is. It felt so surreal. I felt it was going home to the Mt. It was heading from Coolum to the Mountain.

I have spoken to one friend who lives at the base of Mt Coolum and she said it would explain the strange swooshing sounds she hears often. She . . . believes in the unknown. It certainly makes you question a lot of things.

Nocturnal Pterosaur of Redcliffe, Australia

In the second edition of my book Searching for Ropens, pages 37-38, a farm boy’s encounter is described. This was around Redcliffe, Queensland, only about forty-four miles south of the Mt. Coolum area where the lady saw the giant pterosaur fly in front of her car.

During his farm chores, between 9:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m., he [a boy of about twelve years old] forgot something and had to backtrack. When he looked back at where he had been, at the door of a shed, he saw a large creature with wings. It was on the roof of the shed, just above the door where he had recently been standing.

Although terrified, the boy had a brief view of the body and wings of the creature. It was larger than an average man six feet tall, with wings that folded to the side and back, reminiscent of bat wings. The boy ran to his house for help, but his parents saw nothing; by the time they had responded, the creature was gone.

Pterosaurs in New Zealand

One or more species of pterosaur may live in New Zealand. Even though it is more than a thousand miles from Australia, where many eyewitnesses have seen apparent modern pterosaurs, those creatures would have little difficulty crossing that distance, over a number of centuries.

“The bird that bit Catherine” involves a child who was reading while sitting on a fence. “She became aware of a little creature sitting next to her,” but gave it little attention at first. She thought it to be just a small green bird with a long tail. When it became noisy, she tried to shoo it away, whereupon the creature bit her finger, spread its leathery wings, and flew away. She then realized how unusual it was and ran to tell her father that she had seen a “dinosaur.”
