Dig a Dinosaur Skeleton - Pterosaur
by 4M/Toysmith

With the Dig a Dinosaur kit from 4M and Toysmith, you'll get to be a top paleontologist! Use the included tools to carefully dig around and brush off the bones that are hidden within the plaster block. Once you've excavated all of them, assemble the new-found skeleton of a Pterosaur and place it on the display platform for everyone to see. There are a total of six dinosaurs in the set; collect them all and have your own personal museum right in the comfort of your bedroom!

The fossils of the first Pterosaur were found in 1784 by the Italian naturalist Cosimo Alessandro Collini, who originally thought that it was a seafaring creature that propelled itself through the water using its elongated forelimbs, a theory that persisted until as late as 1830. Its name means "winged lizard", and they are the earliest known vertebrates known to have evolved into powered flight. Many of them are thought to have been covered by furry coats that were made up of hair-like filaments, and the current consensus is that they are more closely related to birds. They are also known as Pterodactyls, though that is technically incorrect as that term is actually for members of the genus Pterodactylus and of the suborder Pterodactyloidea.

Assembled, the skeleton has a wingspan of approximately 45cm.
