Why would they change the name?
AmericanRaptor's avatar
I always liked this Pterosaur genre. Of course, I liked it more when it was P. Sternbergi, but I don't mind.

They changed his name, huh?


Next they'll say Pluto's not a planet anymore...wait...

When I was a kid, Pluto was a planet... And Pteranodon sternbergi was a real thing.
On the other hand, Brontosaurus exists again.

Sad how times change, isn't it? Or at least, it's sad how scientific whimsy changes.

So Geosternbergia sternbergi is no longer a Pteranodon species?:confused:

This type of head is for male?
There are some other type of skulls I saw
tuomaskoivurinne's avatar
Yes, this is based on the skulls generally considered to be Pteranodon sternbergi males.
What kind of skulls do You mean?

Great series. This particular scene is so lively that I can picture David Attenborough next to them, trying to talk to the camera thourgh the noise.

*laughs* I thought the same thing! The scene feels very similar to what gannet pairs do in their breeding colonies, even though these are two males displaying for competitive reasons.

I don't think that my perspective has been helped by just having finished David Attenborough's 'The Life of Birds' documentary series last night, ha ha. Truly AWESOME documentary.
