Wow, revision Kill La Kill Icon: Mako Well that is pretty big about 12 or 14 feet long.

Gonna go out on limb hear say this, but don't you think they should also mention a pterosaurs body length and height than just a wingspan?:iconberwaldplz:

Unfortunately most fossil remains are a bit scrappy so size is difficult to ascertain & weight estimates are all over the place, none of these statistics can be taken as gospel :happybounce:

Nothing is too difficult in you use a ruler for full constructed fossils it should be easy.

Pteranodons and Quetzalcoatlus are so far the only two pterosaurs I know the height of by guess at least.

Posture can make a big difference to height did pterosaurs keep their arms straight or did they bend their elbows? Even fossil track way evidence is contradictory.
