A wooden carving in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, seems to be evidence that the ropen is a real living creature, not a myth of native superstition. And descriptions from eyewitnesses, natives & Westerners, strongly suggest that this ropen is a Rhamphorhynchoid pterosaur.
Papua New Guinea, Islands of Mystery
"Are the mysteries of Papua New Guinea exaggerated? From the mid-1990ís, several Americans have explored certain areas, including  Umboi Island. What have they  been seeking? Living pterosaurs! Some reports indicate the creatures may grow to have a wingspan greater than twenty feet."
