Cryptid Profile - The Ropen or "The Living Pterosaur"

Today we combine Paleo Profile somewhat with Cryptid Profile when we examine the bizarre cryptid called “the Ropen” or “the Living Pterosaur”. The Ropen is a strange alleged beast from Papua New Guinea that is bioluminescent and digs up graves! Yes a grave digging glow-in-the-dark pterosaur! But that’s not all! It’s a Christian too!
We have a long examination of the cryptid’s plausibility, reliability of eyewitnesses, and strange association with religion!
Oh, and I also go on a few rants along the way.

Hope you enjoy!

I want to thank all that submitted fan art for this video! Thank you so much!
