How do pterodactyls breed?

Pterodactylus had a headcrest, which may have been used by males in displays to attract mates. Beyond that, we know nothing about how they selected mates. Pterodactylus would have buried their soft shelled eggs in the ground, similar to lizards and crocodiles. When the egg or eggs hatched, the hatchling would have either been fed by its parents or sustained by a yolk sack for a few days until its wings were developed enough for it to fly. After that, the flapling, as it is called, would fend for itself.
