A Transylvanian dinosaur which could walk on all fours or take to the skies on three metre wings has been unearthed by scientists.

The newly discovered pterorsaur, which is 68 million years old, was unearthed in Romania's Transylvanian Basin.

The creature, named Eurazhdarcho langendorfensis, had a long neck and beak and could fold up its huge wings when it needed to walk on all fours, reports journal PLoS ONE.

Oh, that's disappointing. I thought it meant they'd found one alive now, somewhere in the Carpathians.
How do they know it was named named Eurazhdarcho langendorfensis? Did it have a name tag on its collar?

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

I've wondered about this.  There were the dinosaurs, the plesiosaurs, the pterosaurs, the turtles, the things that later became snakes and lizards, the things that later became birds, the crocidilians and another bunch called the "mammal-like reptiles".  We call all of them reptiles, but they are as different from one another as from mammals.   Do we just lump them all together because they were contemporaneous and it's a habit?

It wouldn't, perchance, have had a taste for blood or predilection for impaling it's prey with it's beak, would it? A Vladodon perhaps? :whistle:

The title needs to be changed as -- 'Flying Transylvanian Pterosaur Unearthed'. It's funny, in that site telegraph.co.uk, they mentioned it as Dinosaur in the title and pterorsaur in the description.
