This companion app for Pterosaurs: The Card Game explores amazing ancient reptiles and their food chains. When triggered by cards from the Pterosaurs deck, the app reveals animations of pterosaurs walking, flying, and more.

Pterosaurs were flying reptiles that lived during the age of dinosaurs—and the first vertebrates to fly under their own power. This app and the analog card game draw on images and information from the 2014 special exhibition Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs.

Use the Pterosaurs: The Card Game app with cards that can be downloaded for free here to reveal animations and 3D models for several species. The analog Pterosaurs: The Card Game is based on the biodiversity card game Phylo ( and was developed by teenagers in the Museum’s #scienceFTW program with game designer Nick Fortugno.
