Fun Fact of the day


There was a flying dinosaur the size of a giraffe.

The pterosaurs—comparable in size to your average giraffe—had a wingspan of 35 feet and could fly for thousands of miles, according to National Geographic. "Instead of taking off with their legs alone, like birds, pterosaurs probably took off using all four of their limbs," paleontologist Michael Habib told The Telegraph. He says that using their strong arms as "the main engines for launching instead of their legs may explain how pterosaurs became so much larger than any other flying animals known."
