A Live Teradactyl Jonathan Whitcomb Live-Pterosaur Expeditions  Ropen expeditions on Umboi Island began in the 1990’s, but the eyewitness interviews in the two expeditions of 2004 were done more scientifically and professionally. First, Jonathan Whitcomb, the forensic videographer, interviewed natives with professional experience in getting to the unique aspects of each sighting. In the second expedition, led by David Woetzel and Garth Guessman, many detailed interview forms were used. The combination of those two inter- viewing techniques, opportunistic and pre-constructed questionairres, resulted in significant discoveries and highly credible cryptozoological evidence for later analysis. The ropen of Umboi Island flies out to a reef on many nights of the month. It may have a varied diet, but the second expedition of 2004 turned up eyewitness evidence that the creature carrys heavy giant clams up into the island interior to eat. Scientific Paper Published “A language barrier forced us to often rely on interpreters and on the limited English skills of many eyewitnesses, although my limited skill in Tok Pisin was of some use. But some eyewitnesses from Umboi Island were more proficient in English, and the cultural gap was less than it would have been if we had gone to an island other than Umboi . . . “Guessman and Woetzel prepared and admin- istered formal interview procedures with a two- page questionnaire and a sketch page of 34 silhouettes of bats, birds, and pterosaurs, although the formal process was not used for all eyewitnesses. My interviews were less formal, relying on opportunities that arose with each eyewitness. For future work, I recommend beginning with this open-format questioning to take advantage of unique opportunities with eyewitnesses (the interviewer using a foreign language) and then following up promising leads with a questionnaire and sketch page . . .” (Creation Research Society Quarterly, Volume 45, Winter 2009, “Reports of Living Pterosaurs in the Southwest Pacific,” by Jonathan Whitcomb) “Teradactyl” is one spelling of one name for the strange flying creature that usually only comes out at night. In Papua New Guinea, this creature has many names: seklo-bali, indava, kor, duwas, and ropen. The various names are in various village languages, and do not necessarily mean any variety of species: just variety of languages.

She later sketched the strange flying creature that scared her and her younger brother. This “Gitmo Pterosaur” seems to be the same species as the “pterodactyl” seen in 1971 by a U.S. Marine: E.
