Re: How to Build a Pterosaur


Yes, I see that the azhdarchid neck has gotten shorter since this earlier image:


The dinosaur in the beak seems to refer to this paper:

Any studies on weight-bearing ability in azhdarchid beaks? Be fitting that a pterosaur bit a dinosaur after the turnabout here:

Still wondering why the wing planform is so deep, when lots of similar Pterodactylus specimens seem to make their wing membranes essentially disappear when folded?

Also, from the same paper,
Figure 3, which of these three pterosaur dentaries does not fit?

Minor griping aside, hat's off to Mark and Co. for bringing pterosaurs to life! Similar plans are afoot here in the States.
