'The Pteriffic Pterosaurs' by Luis Rey

The header is an extract from a larger image of some of the biggest and most bizarre crests going and I have put up a copy of the original here to show off both Luis Rey’s artwork and the pterosaurs in all their bizarre glory. Shown are (L-R): Tropegnathus(by a nose), Dsungaripterus (curvy), Tupuxuara, then Tapejara imperator top – (soon to be renamed), Caulkicephalus (middle – orangey) and finally Nyctosaurus (actually seen with a reduced posterior bar – most unlike Luis to miss out on the opportunity to make something bigger!). These are all derived pterodactyloids, but actually crests extend across the whole of Pterosauria and there is barely a clade that does not have a crest of some form or another.
