Hollow-boned pteranodon was light, had a small body and no tail. It might have had fur. Its brain was large and it had a good vision.

Although with no teeth, pteranodon was a predator. It used to feed on fish, caught from the surface of the water, also molluscs, crabs, insects and dead animals, found on the shore.

It most likely used to feed like a modern-day pelican by scooping-up fish from the water and swallowing it whole. Pteranodon could flap and fly, covering large distances using their huge and light wings.
