Did you know?
That Pteranodon walked on four legs? They found Pteranodon tracks? Pteranodon probably took off from a
standing, quadrupedal position?Using their long forelimbs for leverage, they would have vaulted themselves
into the air in a rapid leap?Almost all of the energy would have been generated by the forelimbs? The
upstroke of the wings would have occurred when the animal cleared the ground followed by a rapid
down-stroke to generate additional lift and complete the launch into the air?
What use did Pteranodons crest have?
It was used for display, only males had large crests, females had a smaller round one.
