Cower Before Pretzlcoatlus !


The long neck of the Quetzlcoatlus always looked really odd to me, until I realised that all of the fossil conformations looked completely off.And when I zoomed in to the pictures of quetzlcoatlus fossils, I noticed that all of the structures were strangely square, almost like pixels. I propose that these are salt crystals ! Taking this new evidence into account,  I suggest an entirely new reconstruction for this beast. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present Pretzlcoatlus !

No, I'm not just overinterpreting every blemish on the paleontological images just to support my theory. I have verified it with tracing paper and crayon. And I need your support to get this new creature recognised by the paleontological community.
Ignore the unsavoury musings that can be found at tetrapod zoology http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/tetrapod-zoology/2012/07/03/world-must-ignore-reptileevolution-com/
And the distasteful take found in Laelaps http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2012/07/pterosaurs-done-wrong/
And you should almost certainly disregard the  "lacking in snacky-goodness" views of the paleo king

Hail Pretzlcoatlus !
