Pterosaur Teeth

These pterosaur teeth come from Kem Kem, Morocco. They are from the Cretaceous Period and are about 100 million years old.

Pterosaurs were flying reptiles. The first pterosaurs in the fossil record were from the Late Triassic Period. They ruled the skies until the end of the Cretaceous Period when a mass extinction wiped them out along with the dinosaurs and thousands of other species. Pterosaurs were the first vertabrates to achieve powered flight.
