The name refers to the Brazilian state Ceará, where its fossils were found. This is a typical pterosaurus from the Cretaceous period.  Based on its length and narrow beak with long, interlocking teeth, cearadactylus used to feed on fish from lakes and rivers.

Fossilised embryos revealed that due to the well-developed membrane of their wings, these creatures could fly as soon as they were born.
