I’ve made replicas of seven different species of pterosaurs so far:
- Guidraco venator (1 skeleton)
- Anhanguera piscator (1 skull)
- Tupandactylus imperator (1 skull)
- Banguela oberlii / Dsungaripterus weii (1 skull)
- Tupuxuara leonardii (1 skeleton)
- Caupedactylus ybaka (1 skull)
- Tapejara wellnhoferi (1 skeleton, 2 skulls – one in progress)
They are all here, hanging somewhere in my place except the Tapejaras. A full Tapejara skeleton is currently flying in the main exhibition hall of the Paleontology Museum of Peirópolis, in Uberaba, Brazil. That’s Tapejara no. 2. Tapejara no. 1 was actually a prototype I made before finishing the Peirópolis, which I later improved and added detail. It’s smaller than Tapejara no. 1 (actually the same size as the AMNH specimen). I’m currently making Tapejara no. 3, which is the most detailed replica so far. I will write about it in another post.
Tapejara no. 1 is currently on display at Geological Museum in Lisbon, Portugal. Here are some photos:
Here is a photo of Professor Miguel Ramalho, me and the Tapejara wellnhoferi skull replica.
