Re: Sky Monsters - Nat. Geo. channel

This sounds like a typo in the decimal place. Without doing any numbers, I'd expect a pterosaur with a 1.5 meter span to weigh very roughly 1 Kg.

As usual I did a bit of research after writing this mail to make sure
I wasn't making a fool of myself (if I am not already) and found
something odd about Preondactylus: The wingspan is stated as 1,5 m but
the weight is put at 10 kg, and my working knowledge of flying
creatures, birds mainly, tells me the animal should weigh at least 6
or 8 times less.
