The ghosts of Christmas Past by vasix The ghosts of Christmas Past by vasix
Merry Christmas to :iconfluffyspiderz: who asked me if I could do a pic of her favorite pterosaur, Guidraco. Guidraco venator (malicious ghost dragon) is a new pterosaur from 2012, in China, the Early Cretaceous, 120 million years ago, Aptian Stage. Fossils are found in the Jiufotang Formation, which also revealed Microraptor, another famous animal.
This was all actually a forest formation, but the Christmas theme, the season theme comes with snow, so why not pterosaurs in the snowy skies of Asia?

Guidraco was a pteranodontoid pterosaur, with long, wicked teeth to grab off slippery little fish. It had a 14 foot wingspan, so was a medium-sized pterosaur.
