Pteranodon was a huge flying reptile with a wingspan of over 20 feet. It belonged to an extinct group of reptiles called pterosaurs. Pterosaurs were not dinosaurs, but were closely related. Pteranodon lived during the Cretaceous Period, about 86 million years ago in what is now western North America. AlthoughPteranodon and other pterosaurs resembled modern bats, they were not related.

  • Scientific Name: Pteranodon, meaning roughly ‘toothless wing’.
  • Characteristics: Although the first pterosaurs had teeth, Pteranodon had a long, slender, toothless beak. The skull has a long crest that projects upward and backward. The function of the crest is uncertain, but we do know that the size and shape of the crest is different in males and females, so it was most likely used as a display structure during courtship.Pteranodon had a tiny tail, much too short to have steered the animal during flight, so the crest may also have been useful as a rudder.
  • Size and Color: This model is 3 inches long with a 7.25 wingspan. The head and leading edges of the wings are reconstructed in a dark brown with lighter colored wing membranes, much like many modern sea birds.
  • The Pteranodon is part of the Wild Safari® Prehistoric World collection
