Hatzegopteryx, the largest flying dinosaur in the world will be exhibited at the Grigore Antipa National museum of natural history on July 28.

The dinosaur has wings that measure 12 metres and a skull that is 3 metres long. It is the largest known pterosaur and was a predator of a small to medium game.

Hatzegopteryx belongs to the Rasnov Dino Park and it will be shown at the Antipa museum within the exhibit ” Wings over time”. The dinosaur was reproduced according to the last discoveries made by Dan Grigorescu, who found the parts of the dinosaur bones.
