DINO-A-DAY #81: Quetzalcoatlus

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!

ORDER: Pterosauria
EXISTED DURING: Late Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: Texas, 1971
FUN FACT: Quetzalcoatlus is named after the Aztec serpent god, Quetzalcoatl. Here is the god himself, via Wikipedia:
