Flying Dinosaurs

Dr. Mark Norell, curator and chair of the American Museum of Natural History’s Paleontology Division, has curated a thrilling new exhibit, Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs that’s on display now! Because Pterosaur bones are so light, few fossils remain, making prehistoric flight an exciting, mysterious field. For kids who are aspiring paleontologists, this will be an exciting look at how fossils form and what their evidence can tell us. This is bound to inspire some great art projects, too! Try drawing your favorite flightless animal as a flying animal: will it have to be lighter? Longer? smaller? The possibilities are endless!
