Ornithocheirus ("OR-nith-oh-KYrus") is a genus of pterosaur that lived in Europe during the Late Cretaceous. It is famous for its disputed taxonomy with many of its species being reclassified as other genera, such as Tropeognathus.

Jurassic Park JuniorEdit

A prototype of Ornithocheirus was made for the short-lived preschool toy line Jurassic Park Junior, but it never had an official release.[1] The prototype had a toothless beak, a feature the real Ornithocheirus never had.
