Study Identifies Largest Flying Creature That Ever Lived
Study Identifies Largest Flying Creature That Ever Lived: Scientists have finally identified and unveiled a new airplane-sized species of pterosaur named Cryodrakon boreas, which scientists say was first discovered more than 30 years ago in Alberta, Canada – a species that lorded over the primeval skies in the late Cretaceous period.
Wow, isn’t it totally exciting when science make these interesting new discoveries? Now, it’s simply a matter of time before all those YouTube videos start coming out, claiming recent sightings. Those folks never disappoint my friends.
And, they’re saying “these remains were actually first discovered more than 30 years ago in Alberta, Canada?” I guess that pretty much explains the red maple leaf on its back. Wonder how the hell they were able to figure out the creature flew for Air Canada?
But what the hell do I know? I mean, I’m certainly no expert on dinosaurs, pterosaurs or even Air Canada. All I know is, back in those days, one could still get a decent meal on a flight. These days, you’re lucky to get a lousy bag of stale peanuts.
Of course, I’m well aware my knowledge of paleontology is rather limited. Hell, until I read this article, I could have sworn the largest flying animal who ever lived was the huge, obnoxious jerk who was snoring in the seat next to me on a flight back from Keokuk, Iowa last month.
