On The Matter of Alleged Civil War Pterosaur Photographs And Modern Day Reports
Following a year’s worth of undergraduate education in Animal Behavior, Ecology, and Conservation, I have embarked on yet another intellectual journey, resulting in my third and hopefully final blog relocation. Please head to “Animal in the Mirror" to read my new writing on humankind's relationship with nonhuman animals, and our denial of our animal nature.
Although it is common knowledge among serious cryptozoological researchers that such images are mere hoaxes, photographs alleging to portray the bodies of relict pterosaurs surrounded by soldiers or hunters have been circulating on the Internet once again. These images often come in compilations such as the one which was featured on the They Live Among Us Facebook page. As it appears that my leaving of comments has still not helped to hinder such innocent misinformation, I thought that it would be best to formally address these photographs here.
