A Live Dragon pterosaur sketch by eyewitness Patty Carson Patty Carson, now an R.N. living in Riverside, California, sketched the flying creature she had seen in Cuba in 1965 Introduction to “A Live Dragon” English-speaking dragons that burn down villages with fiery breath or use magic---- those dragons live in fiction, not here. This page holds nonfiction stories of eyewitness sightings of apparent pterosaurs. For those unwilling to type “Rhamphorhynchoid” or “pterosaur,” remember “alivedragon.com” But links to cryptozoological sites on living pterosaurs----those are more common here than the eyewitness accounts; other sites hold more details on sightings. Carson’s 1965 Sighting in Cuba  Patty Carson was only a child when she and her brother saw the “dinosaur” at the U. S. Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba, in 1965. But the children froze as they watched the flying creature that was only thirty feet away. Patty had the time to gain a clear memory of details. But the two children were not alone as eyewitnesses of a pterosaur in Cuba. Kuhn’s 1971 Sighting in Cuba  Eskin C. Kuhn was no child in the summer of 1971. He was a United States Marine at the Guantanamo Bay military station. He had no idea that several children had seen apparent pterosaurs in that part of Cuba, in the 1960’s, on several occasions. Kuhn has given us many details about his encounter with two flying creatures and has also sketched what he  saw. “I saw two pterosaurs (or pterodactyls . . . what’s in a name?) flying together at low altitude, perhaps 100 feet, very close in range from where I was standing, so that I had a perfectly clear view of them.” U.S. Marine Eskin Kuhn drew this sketch of a pterosaur he saw Sketch drawn by Eskin Kuhn Copyright 2011, 2012 Jonathan Whitcomb Pterosaur News
