Why does the pterosaur have a Teletubbies hat?

He’s celebrating New Year’s Eve! (He’s a party animal) I will remove it after :) (Smile) :happybounce: Boing! Boing!

The party hats are rarely preserved due to specific conditions needed for their fossilization. There is however a possibility that all the pterosaurs wore them. xD

Or at least had plant materials to make them if they were like Jim Henson's Dinosaurs or Dinosaur Train.

That could explain the evolution of a crest in later pterosaurs :) (Smile) Nod
