DINO-A-DAY #79: Cearadactylus

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: Cearadactylus
PRONUNCIATION: say-ahr-ah-DAK-ti-lus
ORDER: Pterosauria
EXISTED DURING: Early Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: Brazil, 1985
FUN FACT: Popular media has given Cearadactylus a bad rap: in the book Jurassic Park it attacks the main characters, and it’s portrayed as a villain in The Land Before Time VII.
