“What’s a show without fireworks? That’s what this next animal gives us: aerial color and excitement! And check out that sail behind its head! Spectacular! Oh, what I meant to say was, this is a Tapejara, one of our more interesting flying species. If you haven’t guessed by now, I’m a fan. I think you should be, too.”
— Isaac Clement
Tapejara was a genus of likely frugivorous pterosaurs from the Early Cretaceous Santana Formation of northeastern Brazil. They reached a wingspan of 3.5 meters (11 feet).
They can be easily recognized by their massive and presumably brightly coloured or patterned crests consisting of a bone frame with a sail stretched between. This crest varied in size (~1-3 feet across) between species, and is shared only with Tapejara’s closest relatives. The genus Tupandactylus were formerly considered species of Tapejara.
