~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Reptiles in the Air

Why are birds so light? How did pterosaurs, extinct flying reptiles, grow so big? The answer may lie in the fact that the bones from both groups are filled with air. Using CT scanning, Stephanie Baumgart‘s research begins to explore the skeletons of modern birds and a partial wing of an extinct Niger pterosaur to draw comparisons between the two.
