Science-A team of paleontologists in Canada have a new pterosaurussoort have been identified that have a wing span of ten metres and 250 kilograms of weight. It’s going to be a huge flying reptile in the Cretaceous era alive.
it is The skeleton of the pterosaurus, Cryodrakon boreas called, is about 77 million years ago, and it is one of the largest flying animals that ever existed. He was as tall as the other well-known pterosaurus, the Quetzalcoatlus (10.5 feet), according to the researchers, on the occasion of the publication of their study in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology.
The fossils were 30 years ago, have been discovered in the Canadian province of Alberta, but scientists have speculated, thought, and then, it would be the Texas, and found the Quetzalcoatlus was. Due to the bones in a further study, the scientists to the conclusion that it was to be a different species. There are more than 100 known species of pterosaurs in America, Europe, and Asia.
“It has been a great discovery. We knew that these animals were here, but now we have to prove that it can be different than the others, and to give it a name,” said David Home, a researcher at Queen Mary University of London, and lead author of the study.

the discovery “gives us a better understanding of the diversity of pterosaurs in North America and their evolution,” adds the investigator, increases. Just like the other flying reptiles of the Chalk, it was Cryodrakon boreas carnivorous. He was raised probably by lizards, small mammals, and even baby dinosaurs.
