Re: pteros have lift-off
There is a 'Z' fold available as part of the launch cycle in both the fore
and hindlimbs of the pterosaurs that I've worked on.

Finally, in present day leapers, from frogs to kangaroos, sort of 'Z' fold
gets created by the femur, tibia and tarsal/pedal elements. And lots of
final push comes from the large pedal digits. Is there a z-fold analogy in
the forelimb of pterosaurs. And is there lots of push coming from the
manual digits? At present, I don't see either.
