Diploalatus arenicolus

This large flying reptile uses its large wings to glide over the bare deserts it calls home. As the dominant predator, Diploalatus makes use of its split lower jaw, upper mandibles, and beak-like upper jaw to catch unsuspecting prey. Males will slam their long-plated necks against one another to fight for territory and mates.
