French workmen disturbed a living pterodactyl in 1856. Creature lived underground, claims newspaper report.
Did those magnificent flying reptiles, the pterodactyls, die out some 65 million years ago as evolutionists believe? Or did they survive Noah's Flood and die out in more recent days?

According to a report in ‘The Illustrated London News' of February 9, 1856 (p.166), some workmen digging a railway tunnel in France last century, between Nancy and St. Dizier, disturbed a strange creature when they gunpowdered an enormous block of stone at Culmont, in Haute Marne, for the tunnel. They described the creature as having a very long neck and sharp teeth. It was livid black, it looked like a bat, and its membranous skin was thick and oily. On reaching the light the creature gave some signs of life by shaking its wings, but it died soon after, uttering a hoarse cry. Its wingspan was measured at 3.22 metres (about 10 feet 7 inches).

A naturalist well versed in palaeontology 'immediately recognised it as belonging to the genus Pterodactylus anas.' The living creature was said to have matched the many fossil remains of pterodactyls which had been found, so it was dubbed 'living fossil'. It is of interest to note that even American Indian mythology seems to describe the huge flying reptiles we call pterodactyls. The Indians call them the Thunderbird, but the description is almost identical. Why? Perhaps because when the Indians arrived in the Americas, pterodactyls were still alive.

Thanks for the laugh but this line is where the article lost all credibility.

Look into the Lordsburg Gate (sometimes called the Lordsburg Door).

In this little New Mexico town (where I grew up for the record), the older farmers used to tell stories that their parents told them, about a strange flying creature like a pterodactyl coming out of this gateway chased by people with then-unknown weaponry.It's well known local legend for the area.

"Anas" is Latin for Duck, French for Duck, after all it was found in France, is "canard", means something rather different in English!

This link has an illustration from the time period. Keep in mind the Illustrated London News was something like the National Enquirer of its time.
