This show is all about pterosaurs, the fascinating flying relatives of dinosaurs that are, if anything, even more enchanting than their earth-bound contemporaries. Visitors will learn that these creatures, who evolved about 220 million years ago, were a super-diverse bunch, ranging in size from that of a sparrow to the enormity of Tropeognathus mesembrinus, a pterosaur with an astonishing wingspan of 25 feet. (A scale model of the latter hovers above the entrance to the exhibition space.) Discover the similarities between the animals and other flying vertebrates, such as birds and bats, in an interactive area that looks at the evolution and aerodynamics of flight.
