Texas Pteranodon, and world's oldest?

Fossilized bones discovered in Texas are from the left wing of an ancient flying reptile that died 89 million years ago, possibly the earliest occurrence of the prehistoric creature Pteranodon, says SMU paleontologist Timothy S. Myers, who identified the fossils.

 

If the reptile is Pteranodon, it would be the world's oldest and the first of its kind discovered as far south as Texas. See www.smuresearch for video, story.
