A Video Review of the Quetzalcoatlus with Prey Model (CollectA)
In 2014, those clever people at CollectA introduced another pterosaur model into their not-to-scale range of prehistoric animals. Not only did this new figure depict a flying reptile on the ground and not in a flying pose with wings outstretched, it also portrayed Quetzalcoatlus as a hunter of dinosaurs. The Quetzalcoatlus with prey model shows this large pterosaur with a baby Alamosaurus in its huge beak.

In this five minute video (four minutes fifty-seven seconds), Everything Dinosaur looks at this model in a little more detail. Why the unfortunate Alamosaurus model was chosen as the prey is explained and team members comment on the colouration, size and scale of this replica.
As for pronunciation, the only species in the Quetzalcoatlus genus named to date is Q. northropi named in 1975. The genus name comes from the feathered serpent God of the Aztec people called Quetzalcoatl. The genus name is pronounced kwet-zal-co-at-lus or kwet-zal-coat-lus, but one thing is for sure, the genus name of this huge, Late Cretaceous, azhdarchid pterosaur needs a bit of a run up when it comes to saying it.
