A new flying reptile (now extinct) has been discovered in Romania. The fossils were found in rocks that match to approximately 68 million years ago. It is classified as a large but not enormous reptile bird compared to the Pterosaur: Questzalcoatlus, which had a wingspan of 45 feet. This new species cannot compare with it’s small but mighty 3 metre wingspan. The discovery of this species is great step towards understanding the behaviour of other similar flying reptiles. The fossils tell us that they were able to fold their wings and walk on all fours as well as fly. (Pretty convenient if I say so myself) . Now if only humans could somehow flap their arms long enough to develop the ability to fly could we have the same convenience.
Here’s an image of the new species:
