Pterosaur

         

 
 
Pterodactyl. . .  —  Buy this art print at AllPosters.com.
 
 
 
 


One of a group of flying reptiles that, while not true dinosaurs, are said to have thrived and become extinct at the same time as the dinosaurs
.


Pterosaurs are classified in a group called the Ornithodira or "bird necks", which in turn is a subgroup of the Archosaurs, or "ruling reptiles," that includes crocodiles, dinosaurs including birds, and "thecodonts." "Pterosaur" comes from two Greek words that together mean "winged lizard." The word "pterodactyl" is also often used. It means "wing finger" and it is an apt description; the wing of the pterosaur is supported mainly by an elongated fourth digit along the forward edge.

Not all pterosaurs were alike. Pteranodons, which came a little later then their cousins, besides not having any teeth, were also tailless. It is believed that they were warm blooded and may have had a thin covering of hair on their bodies.


Although these flying reptiles are supposed to be extinct for over 60 million years, reports of sightings of pterodactyl-like creatures have been made all over the world in the last 200 years, most frequently in Africa and the United States.
