We are all familiar to Pterodactyl, the flying dinosaur. But, actually there existed so many flying dinosaurs. The common name of all this “flying dinosaurs” is Pterosaurs. There are about 130 genus of Pterosaurs existed in the jurassic period. Here I listed some of them —

1. Pterodactyl

The Pterodactyls had a couple of very wide wings up to 40 feet long. But, these wings are not similar to modern bird’s wings. There were no feathers , their wings were made of a leathery substance. They lived near the sea in the cave & trees. They ate sea fish, large insects & other small dinosaurs. We found their fossils in Europe, North America, Australia, and Africa.

2. Petinosaurus

Petinosaurus wings were formed by membranes of skin and other soft tissues. And also there were no feathers on their wings. These types of flying dinosaurs are small in size than Pterodactyl. Food habit is the same as Pterodactyl. They lived in the trees.

3. Pteranodon

Pteranodon mens toothless wing. Yes, this type of flying dinosaur had no teeth. Length of the wings was 6 metre. They had also featherless wings. They lived in the caves & trees. Their food habit is the same as Pterodactyl. Their fossils were found in North America & Europe.

Very interesting, thank you!
I wonder, why are no flying lizards left? Was this a dead end of evolution?
Also, when some saurus' had feathers - have they been the direct ancestors of birds? And why are so many birds living today, but no feathered lizards?

After a massive collision with asteroids millions years ago all creatures on earth were extinct. All species of dinosaurs including flying dinosaurs are not existed now. But, some types of flying lizards are found now. Such as Draco. It's one kind of lizard which can fly with their leather (not feather) wings.

Pterodactyl was actually not a dinosaur. But all birds are dinosaurs so there are indeed many that can fly.
