Looks like a booby bird. Wonder if those things would have been sailing around Christmas Island if Christmas Island had existed that long ago.

Furry wings, precursor to feathers? :)

Pterosaurs aren't ancestors of birds so their fur can't be precursor of the feathers but the structure might be analogous.

I was probably thinking in terms of Sasquatch rather than biology. Not quite analagous :S

Sasquatch is presumably a mammal so the analogy still doesn't work ;)

I love the furry wings :D



I thought those "Rhamphorhynchoids" had cruropatagia which connect the hind limbs but leave the tail out?

Not sure if this is widely accepted. I think Unwin is the main proponent of this theory...

Did all pterosaurs have fur/feathers on their wings?

I would say, probably yes. This is inferred from a recent discovery from China:
