Alaska’s First Pterosaur:
The Denali Pterosaur’s bone rattling call echos across the flats - as it glides over a herd of Hadrosaurs leaving a trackway in the wet mud that will be discovered in what is now Denali National Park, Alaska 70 million years ago.
“Denali Pterosaur, Cretaceous Alaska” features the pterosaur that left a hand impression discovered in Denali National Park, in July of 2009. The discovery marked the first confirmed documentation of pterosaurs this far north and is a hallmark in regards to Alaskan paleontology.
By the recommendations of the noted “Tony Fiorillo” The pterosaur was modeled after a Quetzalcoatlus Sp., similar to the giants found in Texas shown below at the Houston Museum of Natural History. Also represented is a new species of prehistoric stork “Magnoavipes Denaliensis,” incorporating the park’s name for a bird that left especially large tracks that were recently discovered in Denali National Park, Alaska.
