The Sky’s Ancient Gliders: Pteranodon

Have you ever dreamed of flying high in the sky, soaring above the clouds like a bird? Imagine going back in time, millions of years ago, to when a creature named Pteranodon ruled the skies. These were not birds or dinosaurs but flying reptiles that lived during the time of the dinosaurs.

Wings Wide Open

The Pteranodon had an incredible wingspan, which could reach up to 7 meters (23 feet). That’s as long as a small bus! Unlike birds, their wings were made of skin, muscle, and other tissues stretching from their ankles to a long, fourth finger. Flying high and far, Pteranodon could glide over oceans to find food.

What Did Pteranodon Eat?

Pteranodon were skilled hunters. Their diet mainly consisted of fish. Picture this: a Pteranodon flying over the water, spotting a fish, then swooping down with its beak to grab a tasty meal. They had sharp beaks that were perfect for catching slippery fish from the water.

The World They Lived In

Pteranodon lived about 85 to 100 million years ago during the late Cretaceous period. This was a time when the Earth looked very different from today. There were vast seas where now there is land, and the climate was much warmer. The Pteranodon shared this world with many dinosaurs, but remember, they were not dinosaurs themselves.

Fossils Tell the Story

Scientists have learned a lot about Pteranodon from fossils, which are the preserved remains of ancient life. Fossils of Pteranodon include bones, teeth, and even impressions of their wings. By studying these fossils, scientists can understand how Pteranodon lived, flew, and ate.
