AUSTIN: The 14-inch long lower jaw of the imposing reptile was discovered on a building site by an amateur fossil hunter.
Amazingly, two of its teeth were still present and experts were able to analyse it and produce an artists impression of what the beast looked like. Paleontologists are now hailing the discovery as 'remarkable'.
The flying dinosaur had a 9ft wingspan and more than 100 razor-sharp teeth. They have named it Aetodactylus halli after it was uncovered by amateur fossil collector Lance Hall on a construction site near Dallas, Texas.
The long, narrow bone was embedded in a powdery shale but had been exposed by the excavation of a hillside next to a road.
