The magnificent Quetzalcoatlus was the size of a small aircraft and one of the largest flying animals ever. Our Quetzalcoatlus toy is much smaller, but still packs tons of detail! This massive, but delicately built, the carnivorous reptile was one of the last of its kind. Like all pterosaurs, an elongate finger supported each of its wing membranes. It soared through the Late Cretaceous skies of North America, 68 million years ago. History: Quetzalcoatlus is a relatively recent discovery. In the 1970s, Douglas Lawson and colleagues discovered several pterosaur skeletons, including a gigantic wing bone, in Big Bend National Park, Texas. In 1975 Lawson described the huge wing as a new species, Quetzalcoatlus northropi, a pterosaur he described as â€œthe largest flying creatureâ€. This pterosaur has since become one of the most famous of its kind and is housed in the Texas Memorial Museum at Austin.
