Due to our increasing knowledge of archaeology, we have started creating stories around dinosaurs. One of the most well-known ones is Jurassic World, which spanned many movie titles, tourist attractions, and games. In this article, let’s check out the top five flying dinosaurs in Jurassic World.

Dimorphodon

Their name means “two-form tooth.” Aside from being able to fly, their sharp teeth and hind claws allow it to grab their prey from below. It made its appearance in the Jurassic World movies. Using their features, they can capture prey, whether on land, sea, or air.

Among all the reptiles in Jurassic World, they are giant creatures that can fly. Their wingspan exceeds that of any other modern bird. Known as the “Toothless Wing,” they usually eat and hunt fish. This is the other flying dinosaurs in Jurassic World.

Tapejara

Unlike the previous entries, this dinosaur is released as a creature in the Jurassic Park: Builder app. The real-life dinosaur lived in northeastern Brazil during the Early Cretaceous era. What makes them recognizable is its crest and a bony prong that stretched up to the back of the head. It is a herbivore in the real while it is classified as a carnivore in the mobile game.

Rhamphorhynchus

This flying dinosaur is found in four games. For Jurassic Park III: Park Builder, it can be created through paleo-DNA. In The Lost World: Jurassic Park on the Playstation, it says that it lives in Isla Sorna as the main prey of Deinonychus and Barasuchus. The arcade game version of The Lost World: Jurassic Park can be spotted flying across the screen. You can create this as an in-game creature in the mobile app Jurassic World: The Game.

It is a flying dinosaur that mostly eats fish and can be seen around southern Germany during the Late Jurassic era. What makes them distinct is the long tail that has a diamond-shaped vane in the end. Its mouth only has rows of needle-like teeth, which allows them to maintain their aquatic diet.

This flying dinosaur was first discovered in Texas in 1971 by Douglas Lawson, a geology student. These species stand out because it did not have teeth and had long, stiff necks. Unlike the other dinosaurs on this list, they tend to scavenge the remains of other dinosaurs.

Its only video appearance was during a 2013 Star Wars convention in Germany, where they hunt humans on a beach. Meanwhile, it can be seen in Jurassic Park III: Park Builder, Jurassic World: The Game, and Jurassic World: Alive. It was also released as a toy under the Jurassic Park Series 2 line.

Conclusion 

These are only some of the many flying dinosaurs in Jurassic World. Not only are they different from one another, but their presence in media projects such as this serve as a reminder of how the Earth used to be. Aside from that, it would help us appreciate the wonders our world used to behold and why it is essential to preserve what we have now.
