Quetzalcoatlus questions

#1 - What's a reasonable size estimate ? They range from 40 to 66 feet. I'm 
pretty sure the
upper end is exagerated, but is 50 feet unreasonable?

#2 - Would it be unreasonable to think those huge thing could DIVE like some 
modern birds.
Fly over water, and dive under the surface to grab a fish and then fly out ...? 
I heard some
birds can dive as deep as a hundred feet (and very fast). But in this case, the 
thing's HUGE.

#3 - What would be a decent weight estimate? 200-300 pounds?
