And here’s Feilongus

Continuing with the ornithocheirid theme, here’s the boreopterid Feilongus. Those with long memories who like pterosaurs with long teeth will remember this beast from 2010 which is another member of the group. Feilongus was named way back (in relative terms) in 2005 and was one of the vanguard of new super weird pterosaurs that was cropping up in China then and of course continue to do so. The hyperelongate jaws and very long teeth (though some are rather exaggerated here as they are largely out of their sockets and so you can see the roots too) were rather unexpected at the time, even if we have even more extended species crop up since.
