DescriptionQuetzalcoatlus is considered the largest flying animal on Earth, once dominating the North American skies. It is similar in height to a giraffe (about 5-6 meters) but has a wingspan of up to 10 meters, equivalent to that of the F-16. Quetzalcoatlus is considered to be the final evolutionary result of the pterosaur.
