Flock of Ancient Flying Reptiles Discovered

7 posts in this topic

An ancient flying reptile with a bizarre, butterflylike head has been unearthed in Brazil.

The newfound reptile species, Caiuajara dobruskii, lived about 80 million years ago in an ancient desert oasis. The beast sported a strange bony crest on its head that looked like the wings of a butterfly, and had the wingspan needed to take flight at a very young age.

Anyone else getting tired of dinosaurs being named in languages other than Latin and Greek?

What's the difference? Naming typically is left to who discovers a species, and considering it was discovered in Brazil it isn't really surprising that they would give it a name in the regional language, which is mostly Portuguese I believe.

Great article, always great to discover a new species regardless of its name and always great to learn more about their movements and habits.

It's doubtful a storm was the cause of this colonies demise....perhaps it was West Indian Lilac?
