HERE IS A Pterodactyl, and it is supposed to be extinct. Than again - - there are reports of it being seen in the "darkest swampland" of Africa.
Here is what say:
Despite what some people still think, modern birds didn't descend from pterosaurs like Pterodactylus and Pteranodon, but from the small, two-legged, meat-eating dinosaurs of the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, many of which were covered with feathers. As far as we know, Pterodacylus and Pteranodon were strictly reptilian in appearance, though it now seems that some odd pterosaur genera (like the late Jurassic Sordes) sported hair-like growths.
