Colossal Creature

Paleontologists recently announced the discovery of ancient remains from a giant winged creature in the Gobi Desert in Mongolia. The giant pterosaur was one of the largest living things to ever take flight.

Pterosaurs lived around the same time as dinosaurs. They were the first animals with a backbone to evolve the ability to fly. The recently discovered pterosaur was the first ever found in Asia "this new find shows that giant pterosaurs had spread over most of the world before being wiped out," says Brian Andres, a paleontologist at the University of Texas at Austin.

My opinion is that I think it is cool they found a prehistoric animal in Mongolia. I hope to see it in a museum with history about it. I love dinosaurs so this article was fun to read and write about it.
