110-million year old pterosaur flies again

A full-size reconstruction of the pterosaur ‘Anhanguera santanae,’ a 110-million year old flying reptile with a 13-foot wingspan, is one of the highlights of the Exhibit Museum of Natural History’s Pterodactyl Exhibition, which opened in April. ‘Anhanguera santanae,’ meaning ‘old devil,’ was found in coastal sediments in Brazil, suggesting that it lived along the coastline where fish were plentiful. The Exhibit Museum, located at 1109 Geddes Ave., is open 9 a.m.–5 p.m. Mon.–Sat. and noon–5 p.m. Sun. Admission is free. Photo by Bob Kalmbach
