Probably squawkers rather than roarers, Pterosaurs were flying reptiles that lived at the same time as dinosaurs. Their wings were made of stretched skin, like bats!

Gravity-defying T. rex
The T. rex is famous for its tiny arms and low centre of gravity, and many a scientist have investigated how the dinosaur would pick itself up if it fell over!  Create your own gravity-defying T. rex in this making activity.
