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.
