Pterodactyl TAS
A pterodactyl on the Amusement Park planet.

A pterodactyl was a flying reptile that lived on the planet Earth millions of years ago. It coexisted with dinosaurs.

In 2269, an away team from the Constitution-class starship Enterprise encountered artificial physical manifestations of a group of pterodactyls on the Shore Leave Planet. They were the first indication that the planet's computer was malfunctioning and creating simulations which it was not meant to. (TAS: "Once Upon a Planet")

Two species of pterosaur were seen in the episode. The crested, tailless one on the left appears to be a Cretaceous period Pteranodon, and the long-tailed one on the right seems to be an earlier, Jurassic species, probably the ramphorynchus.
