Completing the Pteranodon

In Animal Crossing

In Animal Crossing, once the pteranodon exhibit is complete, Blathers will give the player information about the creature through the following dialogue.

"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

Upon completion of the pteranodon exhibit at the museum in Wild World, Blathers will give the player some information about the creature.

"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

After donating all of the pieces of the pteranodon to the museum in City Folk, Blathers will give the player information on the creature with the following dialogue.

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."
