— Allen
Quetzalcoatlus ("Mexican Feathered God") was a magnificent giant flying reptile, or pterosaur, that lived during the Late Cretaceous period. It was among the largest pterosaur ever to hit the skies.

FactsEdit

Time/Era/PeriodEdit

Quetzalcoatlus lived 75-65 million years ago during the Late Cretaceous in North America, making it one of the last pterosaur species to exist as well.

Size/DescriptionEdit

Quetzalcoatlus was the largest pterosaur ever to have lived in Earths history and thus the largest flying vertebrate of all time, as far as we know, possessing an 13-15 meter wingspan and weighing 250 kg. Ergo, it was much larger than Ornithocheirus. Quetzalcoatlus also fed on fish like all other pterosaurs.
