Caption: Pteranodons in flight. Computer artwork of two pteranodons (Pteranodon sp.), a type of pterosaur (flying reptile) that was related to the dinosaurs. This fish-eating predator lived between 85 and 75 million years ago, in the late Cretaceous period. Its wing span was around 9 metres. It is thought that Pteranodon was a superb flyer, although it is likely that it glided most of the time. The bony process at the back of the skull may have been an aid to steering. Fossil Pteranodons have been found in the USA and in England.
