Description

In another excerpt from Mike Whitla’s eighteen-song opera Dinostory: The Ultimate Dinosaur Rock Opera, sit and watch the pterodactyl fly high into the sky. Learn how the pterodactyl hatches from an egg, grows up to be strong, eats meat it finds on the ground, or dives into the ocean for a meal of fish. But don’t be confused by the pterodactyl—he isn’t a dinosaur. Do you know why?

Full Text

I’m a pterodactyl.
I’m flyin’ high in the sky.
I’m a pterodactyl.
I’m not a dinosaur ’cause I can fly.

I come from an egg that’s laid in a nest,
like the birds I’m related to.
I grow up to be strong, and before very long
I’m flying like my parents do
’cause I’m a pterodactyl.
I’m flyin’ high in the sky.
I’m a pterodactyl.
I’m not a dinosaur ’cause I can fly.

We’ve got lots of different types, like a Quetzalcoatlus,
with his wings 35 feet long.
Some eat meat that they found sittin’ on the ground,
and some eat fish like the pteranodon
’cause I’m a pterodactyl.
I’m flyin’ high in the sky.
I’m a pterodactyl.
I’m not a dinosaur ’cause I can fly.

We’ve got hollow bones to help make us light,
so it’s easier when we fly.
We’ve got crests on our heads, some have beaks, some have teeth.
Listen and you’ll hear us cry . . .
I’m a pterodactyl.
I’m flyin’ high in the sky.
I’m a pterodactyl.
I’m not a dinosaur ’cause I can fly.

Everybody!

I’m a pterodactyl.
I’m flyin’ high in the sky.
I’m a pterodactyl.
I’m not a dinosaur ’cause I can fly.

Sit and watch me fly
up into the sky.
