THE PTEROSAUR

Anhanguera piscator, the primary model for the proportions of the replica. LARGER IMAGE >>

The aim of the project is to replicate the African pterosaur discovered by paleontologist Paul Sereno on a National Geographic expedition in Niger. Due to the incompleteness of the specimen, the replica's proportions will be based primarily on Anhanguera piscator, a related pterosaur from South America.

Anhanguera piscator is known from several well preserved 3-D specimens, some nearly complete, which makes it a good reference for proportions and joint motion.
