There are hundreds of known species of pterosaur, and that is only a fraction of the total number of species of pterosaur that existed, as people have only discovered a small percentage of them. Different pterosaur species grew to different sizes. One of the smaller pterosaurs was Pterodactylus, which had an adult wingspan of about 5 feet. The largest well known pterosaur is Quetzalcoatlus, which had a wingspan of 33 to 36 feet. It may have weighed as much as 440 to 550 pounds, but there are no modern animals with a similar body plan to pterosaurs and thus determining their weight is nearly impossible.


The smallest known pterosaur, Nemicolopterus, may have had a wingspan of only 10 inches. The largest known pterosaur, Quetzalcoatlus, had a 33 foot wingspan and may have weighed as much as 550 pounds. In metric, that is 10 meters and 250 kg, respectively.


The most famous pterosaur known from fossils found in Texas was the Quetzalcoatlus. Quetzalcoatlus is the largest well known pterosaur, with a wingspan estimated to have been between 33 and 36 feet. Weight estimates are very difficult, as there are no modern animals with a body plan similar to that of the Quetzalcoatlus, but they range from from 150 to 550 pounds.


There are many different species of pterosaur. The smallest one, Nemicolopterus, had a wingspan of 10 inches. The largest, Quetzalcoatlus, measured over 30 feet in length. Their weight is estimated at somewhere up to 550 lbs.


Pterodactylus refers to a specific species of pterosaur. However, people often use the word "pterodactyl" interchangeably with "pterosaur" when they talk about flying reptiles. When discussing flying reptiles in general, the correct word is pterosaur, while Pterodactylus refers to a specific type of pterosaur.


Pterosaur comes from the Greek words "pteros" and "sauros". The former means "wing" and the latter means "lizard," so pterosaur means "winged lizard."


There are at least 135 known genera of pterosaur, and each genus has at least one species. The size of a pterosaur would depend on what species it belonged to. For example, the relatively small Pterodactylus had a wingspan of about 5 feet, while the huge Quetzalcoatlus had a wingspan of 33 to 36 feet.



There were many different types of pterosaurs. The largest known pterosaur was Quetzalcoatlus, and may have weighed as much as 500 pounds, although it is not certain that it was able to fly. The small pterosoaurs, however, probably weighed about the same amount as average birds do today.



the largest pterosaur which lived at the same time as the dinosaurs was called a Quetzalcoatlus.


Quetzalcoatlus was not actually a dinosaur; it was a flying reptile, or pterosaur. It is the largest known pterosaur, with a wingspan of up to 36 feet.


No. Some people will generically call pterosaurs pterodactyl, but it is incorrect to do so. Pterodactyl was just one kind of pterosaur.


Rhamphorhynchus was a pterosaur, not a dinosaur.


The largest pterosaur on the Earth that lived with the dinosaurs is the Quetzalcoactus. It was named after a god. Quetzalcoactus was as large as a small plane! Wow!


There are 135 or more known genera of pterosaur, and each genus has at least one species. Different species were different sizes. Pterodactylus, a relatively small pterosaur, had an adult wingspan of about 5 feet. Quetzalcoatlus, the largest known pterosaur, had a wingspan of 33 to 36 feet.


Pterosaur comes from the Greek words "pteros" and "sauros." "Pteros" means winged, and "sauros" means lizard, so "pterosaur" means "winged lizard."


Most pterosaurs traveled primarily by flying. However, all pterosaurs were capable of walking. They were quadrupeds, walking by folding their wings and using their wings and feet to bear their weight.


There were thousands of different species of pterosaurs, and different pterosaurs were different weights. In addition, the body plan of pterosaurs is completely different from that of any living animals, so estimating their weights is incredibly difficult. Small pterosaurs would have been a number of ounces to just a couple pounds, whereas the biggest pterosaur, Quetzalcoatlus, weighed either about 150 or 440 to 550 pounds, or anywhere in between, depending on whose weight estimate you use.


The large prehistoric avian (pterosaur) is a pterodactyl.

Neither. Pterodactyl was a pterosaur, not a dinosaur.


The flying dinosaur, a pterosaur, is spelled pterodactyl.


The type of "flying dinosaur" or pterosaur is a pterodactyl.
