DINO-A-DAY #3: Pterodaustro

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!



NAME: Pterodaustro
PRONUNCIATION: ter-o-DAW-stroh
ORDER: Pterosauria
EXISTED DURING: Early Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: Argentina, late 1960s
FUN FACT: Pterodaustro's filter-feeding diet likely gave it a pink hue, leading to its nickname "the flamingo pterosaur".
