Pteranodon - Vinyl Model 
Detailed Images

Pterosaurs were possibly the first vertebrates to take powered flight, Pteranodon longiceps ("winged tooth") was among the largest. This flying ace would have ruled the skies over the Western Interior Seaway. Strong evidence suggests they could soar for long periods of time without flapping, much like an Albatross, as they searched for small fish. This sea predator may have been able speed through the sky with powerful flapping of its large membranous wings to attack and to avoid danger. The large crest on top of the Pteranodon skull may have been used in mating displays or merely as a kind of rudder steering it through the Cretaceous skies. On land these graceful fliers could have walked on all fours. Pteranodon is only found in Late Cretaceous sediments in North America.

This brightly colored dinosaur makes an excellent child's toy. There are several Vinyl Models available in the Favorite Collection line of soft bodied toys. Mr. Kazunari Araki, a famous Japanese sculptor, supervised the the production of this line of Favorite Collection models.
