We are all familiar to Pterodactyl, the flying dinosaur. But, actually there existed so many flying dinosaurs. The common name of all this “flying dinosaurs” is Pterosaurs. There are about 130 genus of Pterosaurs existed in the jurassic period. Here I listed some of them —

1. Pterodactyl

The Pterodactyls had a couple of very wide wings up to 40 feet long. But, these wings are not similar to modern bird’s wings. There were no feathers , their wings were made of a leathery substance. They lived near the sea in the cave & trees. They ate sea fish, large insects & other small dinosaurs. We found their fossils in Europe, North America, Australia, and Africa.

Really interesting, thanks,

Nice to see people using this tag, I am a believer in it too. I created a tag too called #steemitisbeautiful and a post in it saying what it is about. Any type of post that is on steemit qualifies to be in it. I mean, there should be at least one general hashtag that one can use without getting flagged for inappropriate tagging. There are times that you just stuck and want to maximize your 5 tags and only came up with 4 and you can't think of another tag then you decide to put in #steemit as one may see it a general tag. Well, I thought so till I started getting flagged. And one flag is enough to do damage even if one hundred people liked or upvotes your work. Thus, I made (steemitisbeautiful) to build on steemit standing from the world on the internet and emanating beauty instead, love overall, forgiveness . This is attainable! Incase, you don't know one more tag to use, you can just slot in hashtag (steemitisbeautiful)

thanks I'll use #steemitisbeautiful tag for my next posting

I only use the #wilt tag too after I was accused of using known tags as a bait for whale votes, like the whales were fishes. Anyway why should we use a tag popular on a competing website, which is being castigated for censorship, when we can have our own tags on steemit? I shall use #steemitisbeautiful henceforth!

I used previously some unique tags such as -
#durga-puja #kali-puja #kolkata #bengali etc.

if you had to be any of the known dinosaurs which would you be?

AKA kongamato, ropen or thunderbird.
