Phosphatodrago mauritanicus is the largest pterosaur found in North Africa. It hunted for fish and occasionally land animal carcasses. The pterosaur family includes many species with extraordinary long necks. This specimen is no exception, it stands 65 in (165 cm) high, with a neck approximately 35 in (90 cm). The skeleton contains 60% of the original bones, and 65% of the skull is complete. Delicate bones of pterosaurs are rarely found in this quality from in the phosphate mines of central Morocco.
