  1. order pterosauria

    Order Pterosauria is a group of prehistoric flying reptiles that lived during the Mesozoic Era, approximately 228 to 66 million years ago. These creatures are characterized by their unique adaptations for flight, including elongated digits supporting membranous wings and a lightweight bone structure. They were the first vertebrates to develop powered flight. They are not considered dinosaurs, but they share a common ancestry. The size of pterosaurs ranged from small, sparrow-sized species to the largest known flying creatures of all time. The exact evolutionary relationship of the pterosaurs to other reptile groups remains unclear.
