The Jurassic

Fossil
Did you know what that fossil was?


The specimen you clicked on was the fossil of a pterosaur like the one pictured on the right. Pterosaurs were reptiles that flew in the skies during the period that dinosaurs roamed the land. This fossil was found at a famous site called Solnhofen in Germany and is about 150 million years old.

Why not visit the Museum and see our new displays about pterosaurs and other fossil reptiles for yourself? .
