Fossils of Flying Reptiles

(Pterosaurs)

sales@dinosaurstore.com

Ctenochasma is distinguished mainly by its numerous long, thin, curved and closely-packed teeth, which lined its elongated and narrow snout. The teeth were so closely packed that they formed a comb, and in adults they projected outward away from the jaws, forming a basket, which was probably used for filter feeding

Pterosaurs

Pterosaurs, meaning "winged lizards," were flying reptiles that existed from  the late Triassic Period, 220 million years ago, to the end of the Cretaceous Period 65.5 million years ago. Pterosaurs are the earliest vertebrates known to have evolved powered flight. Their wings were formed by a membrane of skin, muscle, and other tissues stretching from the legs to a dramatically lengthened fourth finger. Early species had long, fully toothed jaws and long tails, while later forms had a highly reduced tail, and some lacked teeth. Many sported furry coats made up of hair-like filaments known as pycnofibres, which covered their bodies and parts of their wings. Pterosaurs spanned a wide range of adult sizes, from the very small Nemicolopterus to the largest known flying creatures of all time, including Quetzalcoatlus and Hatzegopteryx. Pterosaurs are often referred to as flying dinosaurs, but this is incorrect. The term "dinosaur" is restricted to a group of reptiles with a unique upright stance (superorder Dinosauria, which includes birds), and excludes the pterosaurs, as well as the various groups of extinct marine reptiles, such as ichthyosaurs, plesiosaurs, and mosasaurs.
