DINO-A-DAY #82: Dsungaripterus

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: Dsungaripterus
PRONUNCIATION: jung-gah-RIP-ter-us
ORDER: Pterosauria
EXISTED DURING: Early Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: China, 1964
FUN FACT: Dsungaripterus had a narrow, toothless front jaw which was probably used to pull shellfish and worms from cracks in the rocks, and to scare its grandchildren.
