|“||Wow! These are Azhdarcho, our next pterosaur!||„|
Azhdarcho was a Mongolian pterosaur from the Late Cretaceous Time Period that was featured in the Chased by Dinosaurs episode "The Giant Claw".
It was a distant cousin to Quetzalcoatlus (featured earlier in the next episode of Prehistoric Earth) and was similar to it in first appearance and behavior. It survived at the Late Cretaceous of the Mesozoic era.
It is known from fragmentary remains including the distinctive, elongated neck vertebrae that characterize members of the family Azhdarchidae, which also includes such giant pterosaurs as Quetzalcoatlus.
In the episode, The Giant Claw, a group of seven Azhdarcho are released into the Aviary.
- The sound effects of Azhdarcho are that of a vulture as well as hawk sounds with a walrus, peacock, quail, toucan, pelican, elephant growl, sea lion, and giraffe.
- Azhdarcho was one of the next creatures brought to the Aviary.
