Zhejiangopterus linhaiensis

The pterosaur Zhejiangopterus linhaiensis is in teh dinosaur base, eatin' all their doods. Zhejiangopterus was an azhdarchid pterosaur from China, terrestrially stalking, as was (probably) their wont. I have given it a speculative soft-tissue crest — everything seems to have crests these days.

This composition is largely stolen from a painting by Christain Schloe. And thanks to Mark Witton for the skeletal reference.
