Re: Did pterosaurs feed by skimming?



The grasping ability of pterosaur
feet, to my knowledge, is still understudied, but a cursory glance at
their pedal morphology suggests their ability to grasp things,
raptor-style, was limited.

Dromeosaurids, to the best of my knowledge, used their feet for locomotion like all non-avian theropods, not for holding prey like falconiforms.
