The first long range sailer of the dragons. They lived during the Oligocene and was found at the coast of north and south america, and in the Sahara where (maybe) the breeding grounds were.
The remains lay beside of primitive whales and other mammels.

Wow, it seems a very efficient sailer. What's the size of that beatiful thing?

Megaceloxus looks like a pterosaur. Inspiration!

primitive whales were very agressive....how they hunted them?...anyway, great designe
Hyrotrioskjan's avatar
They don't hunt them, They just both fossilized at the same place.

This is beautiful my friend :).

But one question. Are all these dragons descendants of dinosaurs, pterosaurs, or are they even members of the Archosaur super order at all?
Hyrotrioskjan's avatar
There next relatives are monitor lizards and mosasaurs. We have so much archosaurs, I want another solution.
TheArchosaurQueen's avatar
Ah, alright. So there even more flying lizards then ptarosaurs are. Hmmm, well I guess that would explain their forked tongues and all :p. Thank you for clearing that up :aww:.

No problem, on the next cladogram I will show it more clearly

Alright cool :).

lol, I also started thinking of the evolution of your dragons compared to the KT event, and I relied that they and the servicing dinosaurs (birds) would be at an arms race and would impact each others ecological developments severely. In other words, your project is awesome enough to make me think deeply early in the day, bravo :clap:.

Thanks =D :bow:
The first dragons appear in the late cretaceous and survive the KT-event. We know a arms race between birds and dragons in south america where they lived together with the terrorbirds =)
