At the museum
In New Horizons
When the player donates to Blathers or selects "Tell me about this!" in New Horizons, he will provide the following information about the fossil:
"The Quetzalcoatlus! The undisputed ruler of the skies...at least during the late Cretaceous period. It had a magnificent wingspan of roughly 36 feet, making it one of the largest flying animals ever! While it no doubt soared magnificently, we now know that it also crawled on all fours. It's a bit disappointing, really... This illustrious sky god scrabbling on the ground like a common beetle... They say you should never meet your heroes..."
The Quetzalcoatlus can be found in the second room of the fossil exhibit in the museum.
As an item
In New Horizons
Quetzalcoatlus is a member of the azhdarchids, highly advanced pterosaurs with toothless beaks and stiff necks. It lived in North America at the very end of the Cretaceous, 68 to 66 million years ago. It is among the largest flying animals ever discovered, with a wingspan of 10-12 meters. How well it flew depends on its weight, which scientists have been unable to agree upon, but some believe it was adapted for long-range soaring, able to travel at 130 km/h (80 mph) for over a week without resting.
