The new research suggested that estimates of pterosaur wing size and shape have been wrong, and that, mechanically, the wings would have had to be crescent-shaped and angled much farther forward on the body than has been thought.
“Something as big a pterosaur is really pushing the limits of what’s possible. That’s what’s interesting from an engineering point of view,” study researcher Colin Palmer was quoted by LiveScience.
