Quetzalcoatlus Pre-Historic Toy
The magnificent Quetzalcoatlus was the size of a small aircraft and one of the largest flying animals ever. Our Quetzalcoatlus toy is much smaller, but still packs tons of detail! This massive, but delicately built, carnivorous reptile was one of the last of its kind. Like all pterosaurs, an elongate finger supported each of its wing membranes. It soared through the Late Cretaceous skies of North America, 68 million years ago.
- History: Quetzalcoatlus is a relatively recent discovery. In the 1970s, Douglas Lawson and colleagues discovered several pterosaur skeletons, including a gigantic wing bone, in Big Bend National Park, Texas. In 1975 Lawson described the huge wing as a new species, Quetzalcoatlus northropi, a pterosaur he described as “the largest flying creature”. This pterosaur has since become one of the most famous of its kind and is housed in the Texas Memorial Museum at Austin.
- Scientific Name: Quetzalcoatlus northropi
- Characteristics: Quetzalcoatlus had a large head with long, toothless jaws and a long, thin neck. It’s small, fuzzy body supported its winged arms, which could grow to an impressive wingspan of up to 35 ft.
- Size: This realistic Quetzalcoatlus toy model is 7.25 inches long and has a wingspan of 8.75 inches.
- Non-toxic and BPA free
