This is one of those “don’t really think it’s real but sure *wish* it was” videos. Shot by an “amateur filmmaker”, the video shows a purported prehistoric Pterosaur (Pterodactyl maybe?) flying over the skies of Boise, Idaho. In the bizarre footage below, a huge bird-like creature flies across the sky and even moves its head glancing download (looking for prey, like a small child, maybe?). The huge wingspan is notable as is its distinct backward-pointing crest.
Zooms of the footage don’t reduce detail and in fact, show clearly defined claws attached to the wings as well as bone-structure within the wing area. If a hoax, this hints at a model and not necessarily CGI. But, oh man, maybe, just maybe, they’ve finally returned!
The Pterosaurs were flying reptiles (technically not dinosaurs) that existed from the Triassic to the end of the Cretaceous Period (about 228 to 66 million years ago). They are believed to have been the earliest vertebrates known to have evolved powered flight.
