Over the weekend, Westminster College honors students visited the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, exploring the special exhibition, Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs

The new exhibit Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs, presents rare fossils, life-size models, and hands-on interactives bring these ancient animals to life.

Did you know? Pterosaurs flew with their fingers and walked on their wings. Some were gigantic, while others could fit in the palm of a hand. Millions of years ago, the skies were ruled by pterosaurs, the first animals with backbones to fly under their own power. Fact provided by The Carnegie Museum of Natural History.)
