Hey, everyone! Just alerting guests and posibly future members that their are currently two slots left to become a board moderator. And their are four slots left for becoming a board RP moderator. Fill 'em in before their all gone!!
Welcome, guests and members, to PREHISTORIC PARADISE. Inspired by the now late Operation Genesis Paradise, this forum id dedicated to all of the current stock of Jurassic Park games aside from the world-infamous JPOG. If your a fan of the Jurassic Park games, join today!!!
Members of the board, be interested in the official board RP's, Isla Sorna: New Blood and Jurassic Park: Isla Nublar!!! Currently, the Isla Nublar RP is in the works, and the Isla Sorna RP is operational as we speak. If your a fan of the Jurassic Park movies and novels, and like the idea of playing as a Jurassic Park dinosaur, join the RP's now!!

PostSubject: Pteranodon Longiceps "Sternbergi"   Sun Dec 16, 2012 4:26 pm

Pteranodon Longiceps "Sternbergi"

Height: 5.9 feet
Weight: 76 pounds
Length: 6.3 feet
Wingspan: 32 feet
---------------
Coloration:
Male: Pale yellowish white body with fur, with a set of dark blue fur starting at the back of the beak ending at the tip of the tail, covering the top of the body minus the wings. Crest on the head is pale yellow, but in older males the crest's are dark tan yellow. Bony beak is pointed and is tan yellow. Eye's are round and red, with circular, black pupils. Skin on the wings is pale beige. Underbelly is pale white.
Young Male: Tan white body with fading, light blue fur starting and ending at the same place as the adult male; starting at the end of the beak, and ending at the tip of the tail. Underbelly is pale white. Crest is pale whiteish yellow, and smaller than the adult male. Eye's are reddish maroon with black, round pupils.
---------------
Female: Pale yellowish white body with a coat of fur. Dull blue fur forms behind the beak, and ends at the tip of the stubby tail, which covers the upper body region minus the wings, which are colored pale beigish white. Crest is smaller than the adult male, but is still colored pale yellow. Eye's are circular and maroon with roundish, black pupils. Bony beak is pointed and is tan yellow. Underbelly is pale white.
Young Female: Pale white body with fading, light blue fur starting and ending at the same place as the adults. Crest is smaller and is colored pale yellow. Eye's are light maroon with round, black pupils. Underbelly is pale white with very slight mixes of light yellow.

Preferred Habitat: High-elevated area's of Isla Sorna like the peaks of the mountains in the Mountain Ranges, or the mountains in the Southern Highlands, where females can nest on cliffsides or in caves.
Diet: Like it's more solitary and more aggresive genetic-related brother, Pteranodon "Hippocratesi", the "Sternbergi" population mostly consumes fish, but will also eat meat, often swooping up dinosaur hatchlings and raiding nests for eggs and hatchlings.
Family: Pterodactylosauridae
Social Structure: Normally solitary, but as seen in TLW: Jurassic Park, flocks of Pteranodon Sternbergi come together in groups, led by an alpha male. These flcks ften have as many as seven specimens, and consist mainly of males, as females are more solitary.
Description: Large pterosaur, the third largest pterosaur on Isla Sorna. Has a long, narrow and toothless jaws, and a long crest which extends backwards in a wiggling curve. In adult and young females, the crest is almost flattened. In adult and young males, however, the crest is larger and widened to be as thick as a cylinder, and points upwards. Skull is big, and the skeleton is hollow and filled with lots of air sacs, reducing the animals weight greatly, allowing both gliding and power flight. Tail is short, stubby and pointed. Females have a pouch in the throat region which is used to store regurgitated fish to feed their offspring. Wings have three claws near the wing-tip, which are considered next to useless. Wings have a leathery texture. Body has a layer of fluffy fur, which is scraggly in young.
Behavior: Pteranodon Sternbergi is the smaller and less aggresive Pteranodon than the Hippocratesi species. Roughly three to four feet smaller in wingspan than the Hippocratesi species, the two are around the same size. Unlike it's toothy brother, Pteranodon Sternbergi has no set of Velociraptor-like teeth, which is paleontologically correct, as no Pteranodon species should have teeth, hence the name meaning "toothless beak". Pteranodon Sternbergi do more power flight, which means they use more energy to flap their wings during flight, than their Hippocratesi brothers, which tend to glide throught the air rather than use power-flight, which uses more energy than gliding. Both species of Pteranodon have excellent eyesight, which comes in handy when fishing. When fishing, Pteranodon Sternbergi glide very close to the water surface, which is very dangerous because it makes them vulnerable to attack from large marine reptiles. They dip their beaks through the water, skimming the surface to snatch up fish. Because of their jaw design, it is quite difficult for fish to escape the grip of Pteranodon Sternbergi. During the breeding season, male Pteranodon Sternbergi gather from everywhere on the island and all come to an open area, usually a beach or a flat area of a mountain to display themselves to females which soar the air around the males. Males display themselves with their crests, and also head-bobbing and make loud screeches and calls. Along with this, males also slam their jaws together towards the sky, creating a cracking sound. Fighting over space between males is common, and often blood will be drawn from the fight. After breeding, the female will leave the area, while the male continues to attract females. Males take no role or part in caring for the young. Females, after mating, come together in nesting colonies and begin to find a safe and secluded spot to build a nest and lay eggs. Usually, the nesting colonies are in large, flat areas of mountains, and the nests are so close to each other their wings can touch each other. Although majestic and beautiful when in flight, all pterosaur species on Isla Sorna are very clumsy when walking on land. Becuase of their wing design, they have to fold up their wings behind them awkwardlly when walking on land, and carefully make weak steps, using their wing claws to dig into the soil for grip. Often at times they trip and fall when walking, and because of this, all pterosaur species tend to avoid walking on the ground, only doing so to rest, mate and nest for females. When they do have to land, they tend to stay on high elevated areas like the cliffsides of mountains where land predators like Allosaurus Fragillis and Spinosaurus cant reach them.
Additional Information: On the island of Isla Sorna, their are two different species of Pteranodon; Hippocratesi and Sternbergi. Unlike the Hippocratesi species, the Sternbergi species is less aggresive, smaller and doesnt have tooth-filled jaws. The Hippocratesi species was originally to be put on display in the aviary for Jurassic Park: Isla Nublar untill it was shown the extent of their aggressiveness and how they have a mouth filled with teeth which can shred a man apart. In placement for their role, the smaller, less aggresive Sternbergi species of Pteranodoon were cloned in their place and several Sternbergi specimens were sent to the Nublar aviary, while the Hippocratesi population were locked up in the Sorna Aviary with the highly aggresive and lethal pterosaur population; Cearadactylus Atrox.
Maximum Age: The oldest an adult Pteranodoon Sternbergi has reached is 28.6 years.
