Yes. Dinosaurs are prey.

Actually, all known pterosaurs were carnivores, and thus they were predators. Depending on the species, pterosaurs ate insects, fish, or small land animals like lizards, amphibians, and primitive mammals. A few species were filter feeders, similar to modern flamingoes, which eat brine shrimp.


Pterosaurs were carnovores. They ate fish. they were also predators not prey.FOR FEATURES WHEN THE PTEROSAURS LIVED The primitive types of pterosaurs appeared during the Triassic period , and died out at the end of the Jurassic period. More advanced pterosaurs appeared late in the Jurassic period and died out during the Cretaceous period. SIZE Their wingspam is 12metres long. The head is 1 metre long.The body is 3 metres long.


Pterosaurs laid leathery eggs and didn't stay to incubate them. The young were born precocial, or capable of fending for themselves. Within days of birth they could fly, and would then be able to escape predators and hunt.


No. Pterosaurs are extinct and humans never met the dinosaurs/pterosaurs.


Pterosaurs were carnivorous.


Yes, pterosaurs were flying creatures.




All known pterosaurs were carnivores. There is no evidence that any pterosaurs ate any plants at all, and thus it is safe to say that at least most, if not all pterosaurs were hypercarnivorous.


Pterosaurs did lay eggs to reproduce. Like modern lizards and crocodiles, pterosaurs laid soft shelled eggs.


Pterosaurs were not actually dinosaurs. Pterosaurs were flying reptiles that lived alongside dinosaurs between 210 and 65.5 million years ago.


Dinosaurs appeared a little bit before the first pterosaurs.


The only known reptiles to have evolved powered flight were pterosaurs. Thus, all pterosaurs were flying reptiles and all flying reptiles are pterosaurs.


Pterodactylus was a pterosaur, and pterosaurs were archosaurs. All pterosaurs died out 65.5 million years ago. Other types of archosaurs include crocodillians, the dinosaurs, and the birds, which evolved from dinosaurs. The pterosaurs were more closely related to the dinosaurs than they were to crocodillians, so the closest living relatives of pterosaurs are the birds. All birds are equally related to pterosaurs.


They are pterodactyls.



No, all pterosaurs died out at the end on the Cretaceous period, 65 million years ago.


Yes, all known pterosaurs were carnivores. Depending on the species, pterosaurs would have preyed on insects, fish, or small land animals like lizards, amphibians, and primitive mammals.


The first pterosaurs appear in the fossil record around 210 million years ago. Because of gaps in the fossil record, paleontologists don't know what creatures were the ancestors of pterosaurs.

The closest relatives of Pterodactylus were other pterosaurs, but they are all extinct. The closest living relatives of Pterodactylus and all other pterosaurs are the birds. All birds are equally related to pterosaurs.


The animals most similar to Pterodactylus were other pterosaurs, or flying reptiles. However, all pterosaurs died out by 65.5 million years ago. The closest living relatives of the pterosaurs happen to be the birds.


There are at least 135 known genera of pterosaurs, and there is at least one species in each genus. Different types of pterosaurs would have had different diets, but all known pterosaurs were carnivorous. Depending on the species, pterosaurs ate insects, fish, or small land animals such as lizards, amphibians, and primitive mammals. A few species were filter feeders similar to flamingoes, which eat brine shrimp.


The pterosaurs have been extinct since the end of the Cretaceous Period, nearly 65 million years ago.
