Arthurdactylus conandoylensis



Last of my Brazilian Pterosaurs series. (well, maybe... we must decide what to do with Nyctosaurus lamegoi....)

Its name comes from Arthur Conan-Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes and the book "The Lost World" (no, no, Crichton no!! there was another book called The lost World).
In that book, Professor Challenger (yes, and from here cames the challengeri of Irritator challengeri) captures a pterosaur in Brazil, and then an expedition is made to discover this Lost World, were dinosaurs, pterosaurs and primitive men inhabit.

Since this pterosaur has no head (the fossil...), I restored it using a Ludodactylus-like head (because they were closely related)

Existiam pterodáctilóides com dentes grandes? Ficou ótimo o desenho seu. :)
