Pterodactylus was a pterosaur that lived in the Late Jurassic of Bavaria, southern Germany. It was the first pterosaur to be scientifically described by the Italian naturalist Cosimo Alessandro Collini in 1784. It was named "Ptero-dactyle" by French anatomist George Cuvier in 1809, but not formally described until 1812. It was first thought to be sea creature of some sort, but was later shown to be a flying reptile.

Jurassic Park: BuilderEdit

Pterodactylus is one of the available creatures on the IOS application, Jurassic Park: Builder, albeit it is just a slightly smaller, differently-colored version of the Pteranodon. Despite being a carnivore and a pterosaur in the game, they get an enclosure without fences like what the herbivores in the game get.
