Why does the pterosaur have a Teletubbies hat?

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.
