Pteranodon was not a dinosaur, though it lived during the same period. Rather, it was a type of flying reptile which lived during the Late Cretaceous. Pteranodon was originally discovered by Othniel Charles Marsh in 1870. Its name means “toothless wing” in Greek.
Pteranodon was approximately 6 feet tall, weighed around 50 pounds and had a wingspan of about 18 feet. It is one of the largest Pterosaurs known.
The scientists believe that pterosaurs were cold-blooded animals that were more suited to gliding than active flying. However, scientists later discovered that some Pteranodon had furry coats consisting of hairlike filaments, suggesting they were warm-blooded and generated their own body heat.
Pterosaurs were carnivores, though some may have occasionally eaten fruits. What the reptiles ate depended on where they lived - some species spent their lives around water, while others were more terrestrial.
