The pterosaur (from the Greek ptero, 'wing', sauros, 'lizard') was a flying reptile, not a dinosaur.
It existed during the Mesozoic era, which began some 230 million years ago and reached 65 million years ago.
There were about 60 different types and they did not have feathers. The wings were thin membranes of skin, similar to those of bats, which extended
along the sides of the body from the knees to the arms. They were held to the fourth finger of each hand, which was very long.
