Nationalgeographic.co.id—A new study reveals that babies Pterosaurus the newly hatched may be able to fly right away. Even though his flying ability is different from Pterosaurus mature.

Pterosaurus are a group of flying reptiles that lived during the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous Periods, i.e. between 228 and 66 million years ago. But, due to the scarcity of eggs and embryos pterosaurus fossilized, and difficulty distinguishing between newly hatched babies or young Pterosaurus, it is not clear whether pterosaurus the newly hatched can fly.

However, researchers from Universities of Portsmouth and Bristol, together with paleontologist Darren Naish, found that the baby’s humerus bone Pterosaurus stronger than many pterosaurus adults, indicating that they are strong enough to fly. The results of the study have been published in Scientific Reports.
