DINO-A-DAY # 1: Anurognathus

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: Anurognathus
ORDER: Pterosaur
DISCOVERED: Germany, 1923
FUN FACT: Like many of the creatures we'll be showcasing here on Dino-a-Day, Anurognathus is not actually a dinosaur, but rather a pterosaur ("winged lizard"). We like to be accurate, but the more specific "Prehistoric Beast-a-Day" is too much of a mouthful.
