Pterosaur hairs



Roughly how hairy were pterosaurs? They are normally restored with quite
short, close-fitting hairs, but HP Dalla Vecchia's paper on Jeholopterus
ningchengensis shows the hairs about 25mm long, and sticking out all over
the place! It looks like a really bushy little fella.
So, how hairy / bushy were pterosaurs? Hope some of our resident
ptero-philes can help!
