The First Pterosaur - Eudimorphodon

Thanks to the vagaries of the fossil record, paleontologists know less about the early history of pterosaurs than they do about crocodiles and dinosaurs, which also evolved from archosaurs ("ruling lizards") during the middle Triassic period. For now, we'll have to content ourselves with Eudimorphodon, which (unlike some other animals on this list) was already fully recognizable as a pterosaur when it flew the skies of Europe 210 million years ago. Until an earlier transitional form is discovered, that's the best we can do!
