It is much wetter than the earlier Triassic period and where there were once deserts there are now vast forests of conifer trees There is even a tiny flying reptile or pterosaur called anurognathus that specializes in life amongst these giants These pterosaurs feed on insects and spend their entire lives They fight feed and breed on creatures that are a 150 thousand times heavier than they are Sick and the old are being weeded out. This is good news for scavengers This carcass is dried hard and the pterosaur burrows deeper to find softer meat but it is never safe to become too preoccupied
