Pteranodon Reconstruction

This painting of two pterosaurs of the Pteranodon genus flying over an ancient sea shows the wing structure, including the claws located at the midpoint, and the large crest. It was created in 1916 by German landscape painter Heinrich Harder for his series of collectible cards Tiere der Urwelt (Animals of the Prehistoric World). Pteranodons are the only type of pterosaur so far discovered in Alabama.
