    DescriptionExperts have teamed up with archeologists in order to analyze not only historical data from ancient times but also fossils of feared predators that have lived in specific zones within certain continents. All the researchers were very attracted by fossils from the Kem Kem group. This group is made up of two distinctive geological formations, one being the older Douira Formation and the younger Gara Sbaa Formation. These groups have been found in the Kem Kem region of eastern Morocco, also part of the Sahara Desert.

The tapejarids were medium-sized pterosaurs from the Cretaceous period, which closed the book on the Mesozoic Era – and welcomed the world to Jurassic park – 66 million years ago. “We are still far from having found all the paleontological treasures of North Africa,” David Martill said. “Even fragmentary fossils … can give us important information about the biodiversity of the past.”
