Re: Last of the Pterosaurs



Did I get the size comparison correct (roughly) on my Quetz page?

The head looks about the right length...I made the wings folded for sake of
saving space on the page.

That's weird, because I saw a lifesized model of a Quetzalcoatlus in the
Museum of the
Rockies, and I was surprised at how little it was.  They had reconstructed
it standing
bipedally (a stance we know it couldn't have held, but it looked cool) and
it looked like
an exceptionally tall and lanky person.  Tall, but certainly not large.  
Maybe the
pterosaur only looked small next to the life-size Maiasaura on the other
side of the
room.
