In recent years, lots of well-preserved, beautiful pterosaurs have been found in Middle Jurassic to Early Cretaceous rocks of the most productive regions in the world. They can match the Jurassic German Solnhofen and the pterosaur fossil localities of Brazil, or even exceed them. At present, about 50 genera belonging to 12 families of pterosaurs have been discovered in China, and make up almost half the number of known pterosaurs in the world. More and more species will continue to be discovered with further research. China has become the richest country with pterosaurs fossils discovered in the world. Much of the information about these new pterosaurs is hidden away in scientific papers and only accessible to specialists. Dragons of the Skies presents the first detailed overview of the wealth of recent pterosaurs discoveries in China. In Dragons of the Skies you can read all about these mesozoic dragons: where they lived, what they ate, and what they looked like. You can also find out where these fossil were found, and where you can see them for yourself today.
