Duah sketch, showing luminous underside at night, Tim Morris (1)

The Duah is a living fossil from Papua New Guinea. It is similar to, and often confused with, the Ropen.

Appearance & Description Edit

The Duah has an appearance similar to that of the Ropen, with wings, a beak, scaly skin, claws, and a bioluminescent underside. However, the Duah is much larger that the Ropen, with a wingspan of 20 feet. Also, it is found on mainland Papua New Guinea, rather than the surrounding islands.

Theories/Explanations Edit

The Duah is thought to be a surviving pterosaur, or an unknown species of bat. Whatever it is, the Duah is probably related to the Ropen.
