Scientist have discovered the earliest species of pterosaur. Named Caelestiventus hanseni, it is about 210 millions-years old.
It predated its “known relatives” by 65 million years. It was not just reached adulthood but measured 1.5 metres in wingspan. Discovered in Utah, its delicate, bird-like skeleton are often found in "quite a crushed state” .
Thus, 65 million “Darwin years” will not make evolution possible.
