The American Museum of Natural History in New York is putting on an international exhibition that gives visitors an up-close look at the fascinating world of prehistoric flying reptiles, or pterosaurs, which soared on air currents tens of millions of years ago.
“Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs” opens tomorrow (April 5) and will run until January, 2015. The museum is co-curating the exhibit with Alexander Kellner, a paleontologist from Brazil. It’s the largest exhibition devoted to pterosaurs ever put together in the U.S.
