Once Again Texas Leads the Way

This Fossil Found in Texas Suggests Pterosaurs Could Fly Really Far: Paleontologists have dug up a 94-million-year-old pterosaur fossil in Texas—the first of its kind discovered in North America. A paper recently published in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology reports that the species' closest relative is a pterosaur that was native to what would have been England today, indicating that the creatures were capable of flying extreme distances.

I'm not surprised--that was in the days before Coach seating and reduced carry-on space, when long-distance flights were so much more pleasant.

It's been a long time, all right.
