Came across this on Facebook the other day.

Any thoughts?

Wow, that is hilarious. And yes it was possible to "photoshop" pictures back in the day. I have a group picture with my grandmother in it taken in 1930, and grandma had died in 1928. Enterprising photographers and processors could do things. This one looks like some kind of a movie prop critter, and maybe the cast or crew took this as a joke.

There is a Horror movie franchise called "Jeepers Creepers".

The plot is every 70 years a flying bat/man type creature emerges to feed. The 70 year cycle gives the creature the advantage of generations forgetting he exists. Even IF he is killed, that is just part of his natural cycle, and he comes back 70 years latter.

OR

that is the ghost writer of William Shakespeare's works ... I forget which. ::dang::

A constructed pterodactyl that's been hanging from the ceiling someplace (or maybe a movie prop). Note the rope loops attached to the leading edge of the wings at the bone points. More apparent on the left (your left) wing.

As well as a popular game fowl for sport trophy hunting, and before it was hunted to extinction in the late 19th/ early 20th century, the Pterodactyl was the traditional bird of choice for Thanksgiving dinner after the disappearance of the Dodo and the Carrier Pigeon. It was replaced by the Turkey primarily due to the relative ease with which a Turkey can be drawn by tracing the hand & fingers by elementary schoolchildren in the construction of Thanksgiving Day cards to their parents.

I thought that was common knowledge. ::shrug::

I just made a hand turkey... I forgot how much fun that was! ::tu::

Now I'm gonna watch Jeepers Creepers III just cause I can. One was a cool movie if you like flying bat/man monsters that eat people. ::teary_eyes::

There are quite a few variations of these type of photos: http://cryptomundo.com/cryptozoo-news/c-w-dinos/
