Perhaps the oceanic environment is more conservative than land environments. "Water world" might not force life to adapt so differently over time. Even dolphins and fish converge in their basic body shape, despite their vastly different genotypes. Again, I am no biologist but it is an interesting question.
As for the ghost thing, well, I find politicians scarier than ghosts any day!
"The record states that in France, some workmen, in the winter of 1856, while working on a railway tunnel between St. Dizey and the Nancy lines, came across a huge boulder of Jurassic Limestone, which precedes the Cretaceous by several million years. After they had broken open the limestone, stumbling out of the tunnel toward them was a creature which fluttered its wings, croaked, and collapsed dead at their feet. This creature had a wingspan of ten feet, seven inches, with four legs joined by a membrane like a bat. What should have been feet were long talons. The mouth was arrayed with sharp teeth. The skin was black, oily, and thick. Local students of paleontology immediately identified this creature as being a pterodactyl. This was all reported in The Illustrated London News, February 9, 1856, page 156. They examined the limestone from which the creature had been released and found a cavity in the exact mold of the creatures body. It this is true, it is absolutely impossible for that creature to have lived more than a few thousand years in any form of hibernation...The worldwide, biblical Noahic flood explains this phenomena far better than the evolutionary process.1
Astute readers will readily recognize the inherent absurdities in this account. While Baugh says the creature could not live inside the rock more than a few thousand years, his own interpretation requires that it be remain buried alive since Noah's Flood--over four thousand years by his own time reckoning.2 How it managed to live and breath without any oxygen (hibernating or not) for a time span orders of magnitude greater than any creature's normal life span, Baugh does not say, or evidently expect us to question. Of course, common sense dictates that the creature could not live inside a sealed rock for thousands of years, or hundreds of years, or even one hour for that matter.3

Holland, Michigan....and I thought about it being a bat, but the neck seemed long. Thanks for the picture, I really didn't know that bats could be that big.

Text Red Hello everyone i'm in Indiana and I am not sure what I had seen. It was dark and windy the temp was fairly warm for being January it was January the 19th 20013 and about 8;30 pm I was sitting on my back porch smoking a cigarette gazing at the moon and stars. I had seen something bolt up towards the moon. I wasn't sure what it was at all then something terrifying happens it opened it's wing's the wingspan was the size of a small plane the detail of the wing was so clear due to the moonlight it appeared to be a bat wing. I could see the veins and membranes it was enormous I couldn't see the rest of the creature I could tell that it's coloration was def brown. Well I flipped out dropped the cigarette and ran inside my husband was siting on the couch playing Xbox at first I couldn't quite get out what it was. "It's a Thunderbird don't' go outside I seen it, It's real." I called up two people who wouldn't think I was crazy. I told them what I had seen they just seemed like ok. After my phone calls I walked back downstairs after crying hysterically. My husband was still sitting on the couch I looked at him. "I didn't see a Thunderbird it was a pterosaur please for the love of God don't go outside and please believe me I haven't lost my mind." My husband respected my wishes and did not go outside that night. I don't know what it was I won't go outside at night alone. I bought a camera to take pics if I can stand witnessing it again. This was real no hallucination or trick of the mind I can't tell people about it. I don't want them to think I'm insane. I do have quite an imagination though it helps with my writing, but it's nothing like this I couldn't let my fantasy bleed into reality.
