Rhamphorhynchus by Xezansaur Rhamphorhynchus by Xezansaur
A Rhamphorhynchus yawning.

I noticed that most of the reconstructions of this and many other animals show them always with muscles in tension. I depicted this archosaur with the tail on the ground, a position not often used. That position, however, shows that these animals relaxed sometimes, and I believe they did even more than sometimes :)

:iconscotthartman: 's skeletal [link] helped me in this reconstruction.

I've been planning to draw this pterosaurs for a very long time (the same happened to Anurognathus), but finally it's yawning for all of us :D

Splendid artwork and idea :clap:. I've heard/read this same argument before, and I agree. To many tense archosaurs, they all need a trip to a spa.
