DINO-A-DAY #4: Dimorphodon

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: Dimorphodon
PRONUNCIATION: die-MOR-fo-don
ORDER: Pterosauria
EXISTED DURING: Early Jurassic
DISCOVERED: UK, 1828
FUN FACT: Dimorphodon's name means "two-form tooth" due to the fact that it had two distinct types of teeth in its jaws--a rarity among reptiles.
