What doomed the pterosaurs?

Still Waters

Sixty six million years ago, life on Earth had a very bad day.

That’s when an immense asteroid slammed into what is now the Yucatan Peninsula, triggering one of the worst extinction crises of all time. This, of course, was the disaster that wiped out the dinosaurs. But it wasn’t just the “terrible lizards” who were lost. The world also saw the last of the coil-shelled squid cousins called ammonites, seagoing lizards called mosasaurs, and myriad other forms of life—including the strange, sometimes massive, flying pterosaurs.

The larger the animal the more stress is on it during environmental upheavals is common knowledge among biologists.
