‘Frozen dragon of the north wind’ flew over North America 77 million years ago, scientists say
A new species of pterosaur, a flying reptile, has been identified in the vast, dry terrain of Canada’s badlands. On Tuesday, it was anointed as “Cryodrakon boreas,” Greek for “Frozen dragon of the north wind.”
The discovery may sound like something out of Westeros (who can forget Jon Snow, beleaguered king in the north, riding Rhaegal over the icy wilderness?) but “Game of Thrones” fans shouldn’t get too excited: According to researchers, Cryodrakon looked less like Daenerys Targaryen’s fire-breathing dragons than it did a giraffe-sized, reptilian stork.
The carnivorous animal lived in modern-day Alberta during the Cretaceous period around 77 million years ago, according to a study in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology. It could grow to about 13 feet tall, with a wingspan of up to 30 feet, making it one of the largest flying animals ever. It had no chewing apparatus, so it would probably eat whatever was small enough to go down its gullet, including lizards, mammals and baby dinosaurs.

I can't imagine, but it would have been interesting to see.

Comment by Stephen on September 11, 2019 at 7:02pm

I saw a documentary about Quetzalcoatlus and they came to the conclusion that it could take off and fly from a standing position. When you look at the size of the thing it's hard to imagine it flying at all.

That thing must need a runway!
