A study identifies the largest flying animal in history



An undated picture published by Queen Mary University in London on September 10, 2019 shows an artist's impression of a newly discovered pterosaur species, Cryodrakon boreas. On September 10, 2019, scientists unveiled a new species of pterosaur, plane-sized reptiles that dominated the primitive sky above the T-rex, Triceratops and other Cretaceous dinosaurs late. With a wingspan of ten meters and a weight of 250 kilos, Cryodrakon boreas rivals another pterosaur, considered the largest flying animal of all time, researchers have reported in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology.
