The Pterosaur is the 6th Dinosaur in the Mesozoic Valley Bubble Universe, which can generate Fossil.

In-game description[]

"Pterosaurs were the earliest vertebrates to evolve flight. They had leathery wings and came in a wide variety of sizes."

Traits[]

Wings (Speed Path)[]

"Pterosaurs were the first to develop this type of limb, which generates thrust and lift while moving through the air. Their leathery wings are closer to those of bats than the feathers of modern birds and later dinosaurs."

Extended Finger (Payout Path)[]

"Pteranodon's leathery, bat-like wings were connected from their ankles to their extremly long fourth finger, giving them a massive wingspan that helped to power their fight."

Rare traits[]

Carnivore

Parallel Evolution

Triassic Age

Epic traits[]

Wikipedia's Info[]

Pterosaurs (/ˈtɛrəsɔːr, ˈtɛroʊ-/; from Greek pteron and sauros, meaning "wing lizard") were flying reptiles of the extinct clade or order Pterosauria. They existed during most of the Mesozoic: from the late Triassic to the end of the Cretaceous (228 to 66 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 ankles to a dramatically lengthened fourth finger.

There were two major types of pterosaurs. Basal pterosaurs (also called 'non-pterodactyloid pterosaurs' or 'rhamphorhynchoids') were smaller animals with fully toothed jaws and, typically, long tails. Later pterosaurs (pterodactyloids) evolved many sizes, shapes, and lifestyles.

Pterosaurs sported coats of hair-like filaments known as pycnofibers, which covered their bodies and parts of their wings. Pycnofibers grew in several forms, from simple filaments to branching down feathers.

Pterosaurs are often referred to by popular media or the general public as "flying dinosaurs", but dinosaurs are defined as the descendants of the last common ancestor of the Saurischia and Ornithischia, which excludes the pterosaurs.

Pterosaurs had a variety of lifestyles. Traditionally seen as fish-eaters, the group is now understood to have included hunters of land animals, insectivores, fruit eaters and even predators of other pterosaurs. They reproduced by eggs, some fossils of which have been discovered.
