With its broad, short wings, this pterosaur, which lived about 130 million years in what's now northeastern China, could bob and weave through branches and reeds to chase down insects. Once this agile hunter got close enough to its prey, it could snatch an insect right out of the air with its small jaws and tiny, sharp teeth.
