They can tell you exactly what it looked like from a handful of bones & teeth..

'Named Ferrodraco lentoni, the new fossil is far from a full skeleton; it includes parts of the upper and lower jaw, five partial neck bones, sections of both wings, and many teeth. But pterosaur finds in Australia are exceedingly rare, and these fossils are exceptionally well preserved'

“It’s really a substantial find,” says David Unwin, a paleontologist at the University of Leicester. “It’s filling in gaps in terms of our knowledge of their spatial distribution and also their distribution in time.”

Described today in Scientific Reports, the newly found pterosaur is roughly 96 million years old, based on previously reported ages of the rock formation thought to entomb the creature’s bones.

I think they’re on the verge of starting to find quite a lot more,” says Dave Hone, a paleontologist at Queen Mary University of London. “Australian dinosaurs are coming, and the pterosaurs are not too far behind.”

The PTB keep distracting the public with more Dino remains but never question the frustration over that pesky missing link that will never be found. All eyes on dragons, few on who we really are. Primates are not human beings. Never were.
