Pterodactyl Mating Flight by Ashere Pterodactyl Mating Flight by Ashere
A small pterodactyl decked out in mating regalia performs tumbling aerial acrobatics to impress a mate...who does not seem terribly impressed. The male pterodactyl is restored with inflatable sacs on its face.

I'm going to get around to coloring this at some point.

Nicely done! I have no doubt that similar behaviour could have been seen in pterosaurs during the mesozoic.

Air sacs such as the ones featured here certainly aren't implausible.Afterall,a fossilized skeleton of a male frigate bird wouldn't show evidence of his throat sac.
