DescriptionScientists were performing field work in Morocco when they unearthed a new species of pterosaur. What’s so unique about this species is that it was the size of a turkey and had a very long, skinny, toothless beak that it used to find hidden prey in the dirt. In fact, its beak has been compared to that of a modern-day kiwi.
