Like the famous Pterodactylus, Alanqa is also a pterosaur, the flying dinosaurs (although not a dinosaur technically). It has been named after Anqa Mughrib, a large mysterious female bird in Arabian mythology. Alanqa belonged to the late Cretaceous period and used to inhabit what is now the Kem Kem Beds of south eastern Morocco. The avian creature is believed to have been a piscivore.
Till very recently, everyone used to believe that Spinosaurus Aegyptiacus used to live only on land (and that’s what Jurassic Park 3 also told us). But the researchers have recently found that it was actually quite well-adapted to the aquatic lifestyle.
