Quake42 said:"I thought that this photo, or at least a very similar one, had been shown to be a hoax involving a modern day civil war re-enaction society? From memory what gave it away is that the 'soldiers' were far too old (most civil war fighters would have been in their teens or early twenties) and probably a little too overweight for the period as well."
Let's not forget that there are TWO DIFFERENT Union-Army-soldiers- with-dead-pterodactyl photographs currently in circulation. While one of the photos shows "Civil War soldiers" who are middle-aged men (and therefore almost certainly Civil War re-enactors), the OTHER one (the "dugout canoe" photo) shows much younger guys. There is no doubt whatsoever that the first photo is fake (Loren Coleman now OWNS the pterodactyl prop!) but the second is still officially up for grabs.
I believe both are fake, of course, for reasons I'll go into in a subsequent post.
