Probably the most well-known flying dinosaur, the Pterodactyl is not actually a dinosaur at all, but a distant cousin called Pterosaur! Pterosaurs were airborne reptiles of the late Jurassic period, and therefore are frequently associated with dinosaurs in the popular imagination. Pterodactyl used to soar through the pre-historic skies of what is now Europe and northern Africa.
