Unmasking the Real Pterosaur

Dinosaurs are known as terrible lizards, being gigantic reptilian creatures from a bygone era. The pterosaur was a winged variety of dinosaurs, known to have scoured the skies millions of years ago.

New scientific research in China may change the visual portrayal of the ancient beasts, as experts discovered pycnofibers in pterosaur fossils. The latest theory points in the direction of furlike coverings resembling hair or the peel of plums. 

These pycnofibers may have evolved independently in the flighted species of dinosaurs due to evolutionary purposes such as improved aerodynamics.  This suggest a new twist to the origin of feathered animals on Earth.
