I think discover a new thing…I look at Owen's reconstruction on Dimorphodon...Now have a Question....between skull and claw of Dimorphodon, We see a small skull with mammals teeth...Do you see this skull?

[link]


Do you know What is this small skull? a mammal (Lemur) as food or a baby Dimorphodon?

Do any scientist have spoken about this small skull in this picture until now?

you can publish an article about it and I am sure all of scientists will be surprised of such discovery

this is an AWESOME creature... I like how it doesn't have to have scales, horns, fangs, a tail, or to overcompensate in any way to be just as fascinating... in fact, it's the strange lack of features that gives this such an eerie humanness... creepy, but fascinating. I want to meet one, LOL.

Thank you - the way you describe it is exactly how I wanted this to be - not a frilly monster, but a "real" and functional creature.

I love functional! I mean, we all "ooh-ahh" the embellished things, but this is refreshing. :) You are welcome.

even when looking at illustrations of real Azhdarchids, I was astonished by how large their heads were compared to the rest of the body, and how tall they could grow compared to humans.
It's hard to believe that they never evolved to super-intelligence :/

Real life azhdarchids had a lot of hollow spaces in their heads, plus the head was very narrow laterally...

Ooh, clever!

What do they eat? Are they oviparous or viviparous? What's their sexual dimorphism like?

I wonder: What about a sapient flying azhdarchid?

They reproduce by laying leathery eggs. The males have a bigger crest on their foreheads, much like a rooster's crown.

Flying sophonrs: A tricky one, but by no means impossible. How would they manipulate objects, though? Feet? Beaks?

I've always imagine sentient pterosaurs as volant. As for other flying sophonts, crows and parrots aren't terribly hard to imagine, and would certainly work as still volant
