a question i have about so many animals back then: how did they not die? many of them had a massive amount of body to keep maintained and tiny heads with long and very narrow mouths, which wont be able to fit a lot of foof into at once. not to mention that i wonder how something with wings that small would fly. i guess its an issue we have with dinos that people in the olden days had with exotic animals (which is why many paintings of those and of sharks etc look nothing like they actually do)

1. The largest bird to have existed was Pelagornis, with a wingspan of 24 feet. Argentavis was just a tad shorter by only a foot. 2. Quetzalcoatlus was only 300 lbs. 3. It's pronounced "tear-o-sore". 4. Paleontologists search for ancient animals. Archaeologists do people. 5. The scavenger idea was disposed over a couple decades ago. Due to the gape in it's jaw and beak shape, it was not suited to take the role of Malibu storks and vultures. Also, it wasn't a black skimmer, it's body was not able to take on the forces that skim feeding would've required. Also, this method wasn't proposed for Quetzalcoatlus, that was an old idea for Thalassodromeus. Instead, Quetzalcoatlus was likely a wader like a heron or shoebill - plucking smaller prey in it's jaws from the ground. Turns out it was more like a giraffe than just in size - it and it's relatives had long, strong limbs that would've enabled them to move like an ungulate. 6. Rodents didn't exist in the Age of Dinosaurs.

"Quetzalcoatlus northropi was the largest", yeah... no, it wasn't. Quetzalcoatlus had a wingspan estimated at around 10-11 m, this was slightly smaller than the estimate for Hatzegopteryx which was 10-12 m and still smaller than that of Arambourgiania which was 12-13 m (however this last one is more unclear). So rather than saying one of them was the largest you should've mentioned all three since all had comparable wingspans and all of them are estimates, not exact measures.

@Alin Alexandru They are pretending to be 'beneficiaries' of some money making scheme to scam people of money. They are essentially engineering a comment feed to create a sense of 'validity' and 'trust' in a quick money scheme to get either the gullible or financially desperate to fall into their trap. So yes, you may as well report it if you want to.

Again Thoughty2, you have delivered another excellent article with no inherent corporate spin or mainstream media false facts. You are to be congratulated for your wholesome presentation of historical facts. Another interesting fact is that you contribute to the human-kind during their short few years that we as homo-sapiens have become the world's most destructive species. Again we, the species are all not destructive; that's where corporations come into the argument. No matter how despicable a pursuit for high profits engagement may be, corporations as themselves deliver nothing of benefit to humankind.

​@noneof yourbusines "Preservation of tradition" in a shitty system of measure? You do know that american scientists use the metric system as well since it makes sense and it's easy to use, unlike the imperial system. So get out of here with your conspiracy "organization seeking a one world government" since that's what this is, crap conspiracy theories.

Preservation of tradition is preferable to compliance with any organization seeking a one world government. Thank goodness most Brits were smart enough to realize this and the Hell out of the EU. But, then Hitler had his followers too.

And Arambourgiania is supposedly bigger than both. But all three should be considered the largest since all only have estimated wingspans, at least until there will be further evidence for more clear values.

evolution doesnt exist, its called adaptation. one organism has never, and will never, "evolve" into an entirely different organism. also a giant meteor didnt kill the dinosaurs, God flooded the earth, and told Noah to build the ark. also the earth is only, roughly, around 10,000 years old.
