Pterodactyl in amber
The Pterodactyl in the picture below is from an incredibly beautiful and perfect specimen with 100% skeleton present.
Here is an example, this Pterodactyl is the most common Pterodactyl in Burmite and specimens come in numerous sizes and social interaction groups in amber.

Although we do archive many top grade well preserved pterodactyl type pterosaurs here is a simple picture below of a poorly preserved pterosaur just to help show how easily they can go unnoticed without careful examination. Visually it can be difficult for amateurs seperating paredolia from incredible fossils and this colony of pterosaurs yeilded incredible micro ct scans whereby we can learn about full anatomical details even when there is nothing visually apparent to the eye. The CT rendering on many of these specimens performed by Professor Christopher Meehan, the Harvard scientist who published his discovery of the world's first vegetarian spider after much ridicule. When Romeo was first acquired there were a few people who knew that something perhaps more interesting existed in the feathery mess above Romeo. After establishing that there was a second potential parent of Romeo also trapped in the amber and seperating the wings of both the mother and father we identified the angle best to use ultra violet light to reveal the father. The head of the father to the top right is larger than his "son" Romeo. Meehan's incredible micro ct rendering talents have helped us identify numerous pterosaurs that we were unaware of and also helped greatly in seperating out messes of carcasses and how to identify easier to understand and easier to photograph specimens. Although Professor Meehan does not work for or with us we are indeed greatful for his assistance in preforming ct renders and also to Dr David Peters who kindly provided us with some thought provoking anatomical color mapping, his incredible daily contributions to science can be followed on these websites :
