Quetzalcoatlus with Alamosaurus prey (CollectA)

3.9 (9 votes)
With a body as big as a giraffe’s and a wingspan of 10 metres or more, Quetzalcoatlus was both the largest pterosaur and the largest flying animal of all time. Next to an adult Alamosaurus, however, it would have looked like a herring gull. But even the biggest sauropods have to start out small…

Traditionally, pterosaur figures have been depicted in a flying pose with their wings spread.

Haoran is enjoying himself as always when relieving the itches along his colossal body by rubbing against the coarse bark of a far more colossal tree. Seeking to scratch both the top and the bottom of his neck at once, he squeezes it between two thick, knobbly branches and grunts with pleasure at the sensation.

Saltasaurus (Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd)

Titanosaurians are a quite poorly known group of sauropod dinosaurs from the Cretaceous Period. Saltasaurus, from Argentina, is one of the better known representatives of this group and it provided the first conclusive evidence for osteoderms (bony armour) in a sauropod; many titanosaurians are now known to have been armoured.

In 1980 José Fernando Bonaparte discovered one of the first sauropods from Argentina, Saltasaurus. Unlike most other Argentinian dinosaurs, Saltasaurus was not discovered in the province of Chubut in the Patagonian centre of Argentina, but as its name suggests in the northwest province of Salta (travellers know the capital Salta as starting point for the colorful landscape of Jujuy).
