Если это аждархид, то длинный хвост - как бы атавизм?

But Azdarchids lacked teeth. D:

Looks much more like an ornithicheirid.

There are many other ways how an animal would be able to breath fire :P

Sure thing, I do not insist on this fire breathing mechanism.

You don't speak German, do you? I recently wrote an article about Dragon Fire in German Dragons Wiki: de.drachen.wikia.com/wiki/Drac…

Awesome-looking speculative pterosaur! It really looks probable.

I have often wondered if man saw pterosaurs and spawned the legends of European dragons and wyverns.

Hmm under what circumstances would it evolve a jaw structure very similar to those of spinosaurs?

When you look at the skulls of many Pterosaurs there is a curved jaw structure which is comparable. So much so that the original doctored specimen of Irritator was initially identified as a Pterosaur before many parts were found to be faked.

The skull similarities are most obvious when you look at Anhanguera and that large recently discovered African pterosaur.

Yes I see where you're coming from. With those teeth and crests, it looked like Caulkicephalus on steroids.
