Any attempt to assess the nature of this relationship, however, is plagued by many problems, not the least of which are the dual specters of Ernst Haeckel and Walter Garstang, which have long haunted by: The Paleogene is divided into three epochs, the Paleocene, Eocene, and Oligocene.

During this relatively short span of time (about as long as the Triassic), the continents began to take on their present form.

Introduction. The third edition of Live Pterosaurs in America is mainly a nonfiction cryptozoology book, with the vast majority of its sightings in the United States.

Its first edition was almost the first book I had written about living pterosaurs, and at that time I wrote in a cross-genre of cryptozoology and Christian nonfiction.
