Toucan Pterosaurs by Qilong Toucan Pterosaurs by Qilong
Here is a fairly small version of my "toucan pterosaur," Dimorphodon macronyx. The wing is raised and the body in a foot-pushing-off launch posture despite that these pterosaurs never likely ran on two legs or launched on them. The distal tail "fin" is omitted, as are the wing membranes, for clarity.

Yeah, they weren't super aerial pros at this stage.

As usual, awesome skeletal! What I wanna know is this: did Dimorphodons look funny eating peanut butter????

I never realized just how small the wings are in relation to the body, especially compared to other pterosaurs.

Truly a toucan, but quite primitive. Awesome job. Hey, don't you live in Oregon, Jaime?
