Photos of Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs
Dawndraco kanzai ~ This species of pterosaur, Dawndraco kanzai, was one of the largest pterosaurs ever to take to the skies toward the end of the era of flying reptiles, between 90 and 66 million years ago. This long-winged, shor-tailed, toothless creature was a close relative of Pteranodon longiceps. During their heyday, Dawndraco, Pteranodon and their oversized cousins soared over a seaway that covered the American Great Plains.
Caupedactylus - Pteros
Caupedactylus, Lower Cretaceous. Caupedactylus was found in limestone that formed under the waves of the incipient Atlantic Ocean, but lived close enough to the shore that it was probably not fully marine in its habits. Tapejarids are thought to have been omnivorous, eating fish, invertebrates, and small terrestrial vertebrates, as well as fruit, seeds, and other plant material. It's likely that Caupedactylus was similar in its habits, and would have had a wide variety of food at its disposal.
