Pteranodon wing display


Pteranodon Sp.

Logan County, Kansas

Niobrara form. Smokey Hill chalk

Santonian-Campanian, late Cretaceous 


Im not exactly sure which bones they are, and I’d appreciate any input about it, but based on the significant difference between the 2 connecting bones, I’d imagine it’s one of the metacarpals and the connecting 1st phalanx.


(I’m very proud of the display/storage box I made for it. Removed box innards and carved tightly fitted slots in padding from an old crystal wine glass box. Who says having random stuff sitting around for decades is a bad thing!?)

Awesome display!

Thank you very much:) it was lucky I had that perfectly sized beautiful box around. I guess most of the credit has to go to the box:/ Even better, it has a foam pad to go over the fossils, so when it’s closed there’s no way they can move at all, and get damaged.
