The Structure of a Pterosaur by jconway The Structure of a Pterosaur by jconway
Here's something I've been working on for quite some time: a multi-layered diagram of all the structural elements of a pterosaur - basically, the things that give them their shape.

You can find the full version, with a still image, an interactive version, and a higher-res video at palaeontography => [link]

It's also up at YouTube [link] , if you want to vote for it, or whatever people do on YouTube.

Absolutely stunning! It's a shame pterosaurs are extinct, they're such fascinating creatures.

Why are all the cool animals dead?!

I want to thank you for making this, it's a helpful reference whenever I'm inventing anatomy for flying critters.

I couldnt ask for a larger image of this by any chance could I? For muscle reference purposes, all credit given of course! I'm stunned you've managed to muscle and build the entire animal!

Very interesting article, especially regarding muscle structure and the nature of their wings.
