'Dragon of death' pterosaur discovered in Argentina


Recommended Posts

 

When it says 30 feet in length, do they mean from tip of the beak to tail, or wingspan length? No matter what, that thing was huge.

Found a little more info down below.

http://novataxa.blogspot.com/2022/05/thanatosdrakon.html where it says -“ Two specimens were identified, the holotype (UNCUYO-LD 307) and the paratype, with an estimated wingspan of ∼ 7 m and ∼ 9 m, respectively

I believe that is wingspan. Another article mentioned that they had a 7 to 9 meter wingspan and 9 meters is about 29.5 feet. BIG BIRD!!!!!

Could be a coincidence that they would be the same, but when I see "30 feet long", I think of "beak to tail end". both measurements could be the same.
