Staying on the extinct species theme for a moment today. Quetzalcoatlus is the largest flying reptile known from the fossil record. Named after the Mesoamerican deity Quetzalcoatl (“feathered serpent”), this creature coasted through the skies of Late Creataceous North America. Its form has been used by DARPA for an experimental UAV and it has been featured in numerous documentaries. Assuredly the kind of animal that inspires our conception of the monstrous. Still ain’t got nothing on Rodan though…
