The PIASA

3 posts in this topic

Amerindians of the US's Northwest Territory tell tales of a giant, winged monster that terrorised their villages in ancient times. These may well be historical accounts of humans coexisting with the winged dinosaur known as the PTERODACTYL.

According to these stories, which are regarded as true accounts by many Native Americans, when the Piasa became angry, it thrashed the ground with its mighty tail, causing the earth to tremble and shake. Just the sight of an Indian was enough to make it angry! With great cunning, the Piasa would swoop down suddenly and unexpectedly upon an Indian, carry him off into a cave and rapidly make a meal of him.

I doubt the Piasa could be a pterodactyl. Even the Indian pictographs portray it as a classic european style "dragon", with six limbs (front arms, wings and back legs). If the indian acconts are true, it is no mere animal, particularly a peanut brained pterosaur. In one account, the Piasas formed alliances with certain tribes, and in battle snatched up the chiefs and leaders of the opposing tribes. It is assumed they could communicate, even actually talk with humans in order to formulate such technical battle strategies.

Perhaps the "dragons" of Europe flew to America when humans in their native habitat started encasing themselves in indigestible suits of metal armor!

Hellz yeah! :o

You can't immediately point every flying repitillian out to be a pterodactyl.
