'Pterodactyl' is the name of a small subgroup of pterosaurs (flying reptiles that lived at the same time as dinosaurs but were not dinosaurs).

The description of a Pterodactyl is a beaked reptile with two short legs, maybe a tail, a longish neck, and two wings. The wings were a bit like bat's wings as the wings were its arms. They ranged in size.

The name 'Pterodactyl' means 'wing finger'.
