Pteranodon sternbergi

The notably prominent, more vertically oriented crest of males of this species would have assisted in balancing their enormous skulls as well as steering their airplane-sized bodies through the air. Pteranodon sternbergi appears slightly earlier in the fossil record than Pteranodon longiceps though both filled important niches in the ecology of the Western Interior Seaway.
