Colourful Guidraco (Pterosaur)

Everything Dinosaur praises the recently introduced CollectA Deluxe/Supreme Guidraco model.

The “Supreme Deluxe” Guidraco pterosaur model (1:4 scale model of a flying reptile), has certainly caused a stir around Everything Dinosaur’s offices.  The Atlantic Puffin inspired colours are certainly very eye-catching on this new CollectA replica.  I see CollectA themselves are equally inspired by this feisty pterosaur, as it features on the front cover of the company’s 2015 brochure.

 This feisty flying reptile was officially named and described in 2012.  The binomial name is Guidraco venator, the name is a combination of Chinese and Latin, it translates as “malicious ghost dragon hunter”.  With that rosette of pointy teeth this was very probably an agile predator that swooped down to snatch fish and other soft bodied creatures from the water.  A flock of these reptiles feeding would have been an awesome sight.
