Coming to the American Museum of Natural History in New York City on Monday, July 1, 2012, through January 4, 2013.
Flying Monsters, on the IMAX.
Follow Sir David Attenborough as he sets out to uncover the truth about the enigmatic pterosaurs—a group of reptiles that ruled the skies about 220 million years ago and, after insects, were the first animals to fly. Attenborough works with scientists and engineers to try and understand how and why pterosaurs flew, traveling to Big Bend National Park in Texas, Lyme Regis in the United Kingdom, and China’s remote Liaoning Province to get answers. The audience will be immersed in the awe-inspiring world of the pterosaur and experience the enormous challenges these creatures faced to survive, let alone flourish, in prehistoric skies.
Flying Monsters is a National Geographic film.

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013.
