Fuzzy Fossils Pteranodon Skull


Introducing a NEW brand from GIANTmicrobes - Fuzzy Fossils!

Pteranodon flew over the shallow seas hunting fish 70 to 65 million years ago. This remarkable reptile was well adapted for fishing with its 30-foot wingspan, long toothless jaw and streamlined skull ideal for diving into the water. Its triangular skull crest pointed backwards and its wings were formed by skin stretched over elongated fingers. The name pteranodon means “wings no teeth.”

Size: 12 x 4.5 x 3

 Velociraptor was a fierce little predator that roamed planet Earth 83 to 70 million years ago. This pint-sized (but packs-a-punch!) dinosaur weighed in at 30 pounds but had sharp claws, long arms, and powerful jaws that made it a top predator of the Cretaceous period. The name velociraptor means "fast hunter," and 100 years ago, fossil hunters unearthed its iconic skull and sickle claw. Thanks to the preserved fossils of velociraptor, we now know a lot about its appearance and behavior—including its awesome nighttime vision, clunky gait (which kept its huge killing claw off the ground), and even that it feasted on the frilled herbivore protoceratops! There's also evidence of feathers, proving that velociraptor was a direct ancestor of modern-day birds. Pretty wild, right?!
