Cretaceous Flying Lizard Named Aetodactylus Halli

The fossilized jaw of a 95 million-year-old pterosaur discovered in Texas in
2006 has been identified as a new genus and species of flying reptile -
The rare pterosaur — literally a winged lizard — is also one of the youngest
members in the world of the family Ornithocheiridae, and only the second
ornithocheirid ever documented in North America.
The newly-named lizard is described in the Journal of vertebrate Paleontology.
Not sure where this prescience comes from, but there it is.
