Witte Museum in San Antonio to exhibit 17-foot Texas pterosaur skeleton
Starting Friday afternoon, visitors to the Witte Museum will be able to see a mounted skeleton of a Quetzalcoatlus northropi, a Texas pterosaur.
The skeleton of the flying reptile, which once soared over what is now known as Texas, is 17 feet tall. It will be displayed in a standing position in the Naylor Family Dinosaur Gallery.
A sculpture depicting the creature flying overhead can be found in the H-E-B Lantern, the museum’s entranceway, and a skeletal Quetzalcaotlus northropi hangs over the fossil dinosaurs.
The new addition to the pterosaurs on display at the museum will be displayed for a limited time.
