Ornithocheirus (meaning "bird hand") is a genus of pterosaur that lived in Europe during the Late Cretaceous. It is famous for its disputed taxonomy with many of its species being reclassified as other genera, such as Tropeognathus.

Behind the Scenes[]

Ornithocheirus was planned to appear in the prologue of Jurassic World: Dominion and later on in the movie, inaccurately having the size of Quetzalcoatlus. This is probably why it was cut and replaced by the latter.
