Pteranodon model making kit with 32 page informational book.

During the Mesozoic era, when dinosaurs roamed the Earth, the skies overhead were filled with flying reptiles.

These animals, neither birds nor dinosaurs are known as pterosaurs.

The Pteranodon is one of the best known pterosaurs. It had an impressive wingspan that allowed it to fly at speeds of up to 80 kilometres per hour.

Read the 32 page book about the flying creatures of the Mesozoic, then assemble the detailed 3D model of the Pteranodon.

Curious about why the Pteranodon isn't actually a dinosaur?

Pteranodon is a genus of Pterosaurs: flying reptiles. It was not a dinosaur, all of which are classified as belonging to the group Dinosauria.

They had a wingspan of more than 6 metres. They lived during the late Cretaceougeological period, 145-66 million years ago.

Pteranodon was the first pterosaur found outside of what we now call Europe. Fossil specimens, many well preserved with nearly complete skulls and articulated skeletons, have been found in Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, South Dakota and Alabama, in North America. This area, known as the Western Interior Seaway, was a large inland sea that split the continent into two landmasses.
