 Rhamphorhynchus in History

Rhamphorhynchus is from the genus of the most often documented fossils. The name refers to the beaky mouth, which varies in size and shape.

In contrast to the Dimorphodon, there are several good fossil prints found documenting the tail of this pterosaur. The legs of this pterosaur are short and tender, and so are the claws on the wing. One striking feature of this pterosaur are the diagonal standing teeth which are to assembled individually in the mouth of our model. Documentation indicates that these pterosaurs were furry skinned.
