2004 Expedition

by Jonathan D.

Whitcomb

The forensic videographer Jonathan Whitcomb traveled alone to Papua New Guinea in 2004. He found an interpreter in the city of Lae, and the two of them

sailed to Umboi Island, where they inter-

viewed many natives who had seen the

bioluminescent ropen: a living pterosaur.
