BOISE, Idaho – Video recently posted online shows a pterodactyl-like creature flying overhead in Idaho and has many buzzing about it on social media.

The YouTube video showing what seems like a prehistoric animal gliding in the sky has been shared around the world.

Since the pterodactyl is extinct, most people who commented online doubted that it was an actual animal.

“The wing flap looks unnatural, too stiffy, looks more like an rc plane or some type of toy,” one person commented on the YouTube page.

“That may be a drone,” another person speculated.

Pterodactly is a term for a winged reptile known as pterosaurs from around 150 million years ago.
