We compare Guidraco Venator with an Aussie Cassowary

Guidraco Venator the Pterosaur from northeast China lived 120 million years ago during the Early Cretaceous era. The name Guidraco Venator means "ghost dragon hunter". This meat eating Pterosaur had some interesting features including: a wingspan between 3 to 5 meters, a long thin skull with a mass of pointy teeth at the end of its jaw, for catching fish, and a round mass on its head. (similar to todays Australian Cassowary bird) 

 

 

Ok so he has big teeth and larger wings and a very big jaw but that head thingie looks very similar? BUY NOW

 Check out those feet!

The Australian Cassowary is a large Omnivorous flightless bird that eats mostly fruits, fungi, invertebrates and small vertebrates. That head feature is in fact a keratinous skin-covered casque which grows with age up to 18cm in an adult.

Have you seen a Cassowary up close? What was that like?
