Here's something I've been working on for quite some time: a multi-layered diagram of all the structural elements of a pterosaur - basically, . The Structure of a Pterosaur

Argentinadraco. Kellner and Calvo tentatively placed Argentinadraco in the Azhdarchidae. They note the grooves and ridges on the lower jaw were probably met by complementary ridges and grooves on the upper jaw. They speculate that it may have used its blade-like mandible to plow through beach sand in search of prey, grasping it tightly with the ridges and grooves. Argentinadraco lived in the Late Cretaceous, approximately 90 million years ago.

This Argentine pterosaur may have used its blade-like jaws to find food in beach sands.
