Cut-out puppet of a pterosaur

Pterosaur

Pterosaurs were flying reptiles that lived between 210 million and 65 million years ago, the same period of time that dinosaurs were alive.

The smallest pterosaurs were about the same size as a chaffinch, while the largest had a wingspan of ten metres or more, making them one of the largest flying animals that has ever existed.

Many pterosaurs had teeth and elaborate crests on their skulls.
