The Isle of Wight’s profile as “Dinosaur Capital of Britain” has just been given another mammoth boost.
It is already widely recognised as the best place in Europe to follow in the footsteps of Dinosaurs or go fossil hunting along its sandy beaches, and was named in 2013 by The Natural History Museum as the “Dinosaur Capital of Britain”. Now the Island is back in the headlines once again - thanks to the discovery of fossilised remains of a giant prehistoric creature with a wingspan of at least 20 feet. The giant pterosaur fossil, known as Hatzegopteryx, lived about 125 million years ago and could be one of the biggest species ever to fly. https://bit.ly/2ncjV49
