The pteranodon is a fossil that can be donated to the museum in all Animal Crossing series games to date. It is a three or four-part fossil, depending on the game - Wild World introduced a fourth part, the body, which was removed in City Folk and continued to be excluded in New Leaf.
Completing the Pteranodon
In Animal Crossing
"First things first, this winged creature is not actually a dinosaur, but rather a flying reptile. It did, however, live among many dinosaurs during the late Cretaceous period. Fascinating, eh wot? The structure of its immense wings suggests that is stayed aloft by gliding rather than flapping, you see? Imagine pteranodons with wingspans of over 23 feet swooping down to catch fish in their pelican-like beaks... Screee...SCHWAAAH!!! Oh, I do beg your pardon. Beaks, wings, flying... It's so very close to home!"
In Wild World
"The pteranodon was simply a wonderful creature. It emerged in the later age of dinosaurs, winging through the ancient skies. Though it could fly, it was most certainly not a bird! No, it was a reptile, wot! When it spread its wings, it was as big as a small airplane. Simply gargantuan! The very thought boggles my brain, to be honest. Ah. Hoo. Yes, so sorry. I'm actually rather glad the brute no longer exists."
In City Folk
In New Leaf
In New Leaf, a plaque by the display offers information about the fossil instead of Blathers.
"Pteranodons were a type of winged reptile, perhaps the ancestors of common birds. With their wings spread, they were about the size of a small airplane, but their bodies were very light. Strangely, they weighed less than 50 pounds, with wings made from skin, allowing for ease of flight."
