Remains Of Giant Dinosaur-Eating Flying Reptile Discovered In Mongolia

November 3, 2017

This is an artist's rendition of a recently discovered (and potentially new) species of flying reptile unearthed in Mongolia. The beast, which lived approximately 70-million years ago, could fly and walk on all fours, had a wingspan of 36-feet, and likely existed on a diet of small and juvenile dinosaurs, like all your favorite characters from 'The Land Before Time.'

With an approximately 36-foot wingspan, "It might have been this quite robust, formidable predator," Mark Witton, an expert on pterosaurs at the University of Portsmouth in the U.K., told National Geographic. "They seem to be feeding on things on the ground and are generalist in their ability to grab basically whatever they can fit in their beaks."

Man, could you imagine seeing one of these things in real life? That would be a SIGHT TO BEHOLD. Not only that, it would be even more amazing because you either 1) learned how to clone extinct animals or 2) built a time machine. Either way, my hat's off to you. Also, my pants. "Um, why?" Come on, I've never had sex with a real genius before.

Thanks to Greenphant, who agrees that thing would make a pretty bitchin' mount to fly into battle provided you can train it not to eat you.

    Now we just need to find usable DNA and we can splice together a non-firebreathing dragon.

    People believe thus garbage but refuse to accept YESHUA HA'MASHIACH / JESUS THE MESSIAH as their Saviour? Wow people wake up while there is still time.Hell is a real place.

    What, that artist rendering is terrible! It makes it look like it stands twice the height of a brontosaurus at the shoulder. 36 ft. Wingspan ppphhhhtttttt!

  • WOULD.

    You mean sexually? Because I'm also excited about that.

    Have you thought about riding the trailer full of burning cans?

  • GeneralDisorder

    Fuck yeah. Huffing spray paint gives a headache at first but once that goes away you feel happy and woozy.

  • MustacheHam

    Pretty impressive find.
    Also why mention "man-eating" if humans weren't around during the dino days?

  • Lordcraft

    Because it's not a dinosaur? :D

  • dougfunnay

    also why not call it a dinosaur eating flying dinosaur?

  • MustacheHam

    Well, I suppose the ancient term "meat eating" could suffice.

  • dougfunnay

    "dinosaur meat eating"
    could suffice better
    or perhaps best
    just make the title
    "Dinosaur Dinosaur Dinosaur"

  • Zachary Zarko

    Donald, is that you?

  • Meh

    I'm sure somewhere on the planet, there's now someone rubbing his hands, hellbend on reviving these angels.

  • dougfunnay

  • Meh
