Nyctosaurus is a genus of pterodactyloid pterosaur which lived during the late Cretaceous period in North America.

Portrayal in the seriesEdit

Nyctosaurus were social animals, living in flocks.  They were ichthyophagous, meaning that it mainly ate fish.  They would hunt by skimming their lower jaw in the water until they felt something.  They would then clamp their jaws shut.  However, whilst feeding, Nyctosaurus would be at risk of predators like Deinosuchus. (PP: Supercroc)

Nyctosaurus had a unique head crest. The L-shaped crest was used primarily for display, like the tail of a peacock.

T-Rex ReturnsEdit

Nyctosaurus was briefly seen flying over Nigel Marven at a waterfall. It should be noted that in real life Nyctosaurus went extinct 19 million years before the K-T Extinction event

SupercrocEdit

Nigel observed a flock of Nyctosaurus. Shortly afterwards, Nigel joined them in the air by using a microlight. Nigel watched as an individual caught a fish. He then watched in awe as the same Nyctosaurus was eaten by a Deinosuchus which plucked it out of the skies.

TriviaEdit

  • 2 Nyctosaurus appeared in the park in the opening titles even though Nigel never brought one back to the park in the series implying that after his adventure, Nigel went back and rescued 2 Nyctosaurus
