I have noticed that many pictures of toothless pterosaurs (_Pteranodon_
etc.) show a small albatross-like hook at the end of the beak. Judging
from the drawings and photos I have, albatrosses and toothless
pterosaurs do not have a similar bone structure at the end of the beak.
Is there any evidence for a hooked beak in toothless pterosaurs? Are
these restorations even plausible?
