OMG how unbelievable does this pterosaur look??? It could run and walk using all four limbs AND fly hundreds of miles at a time. IT IS SO FREAKING COOL. Granted, as the article points out, having them alive today would mean the risk of being hit by bird doo from an animal much much bigger. Imagine that hurtling toward your car….

io9.com discusses the theoretical life of pterosaurs if they were alive with us today. No dinosaurs here, though. Pterosaurs are flying reptiles; they are not dinosaurs.

Find out for yourself and read the article on io9.com.
