New Pterosaur Species Found in Brazil Lived in Families

Unique graveyard of flying lizards show they had huge crests, ate fruit and either lived in an oasis or migrated over it, paleontologists say.

A graveyard of pterosaurs has been found in southern Brazil at what had been the bottom of a Cretaceous lake, shedding new light on how these reptiles flew – and lived, which was apparently in families. Also, they had enormous crests that made the adults look rather like flying sailboats. There crest seems to have been common to both sexes, and to have grown larger with age.
