Rhamphorhynchus muensteri in... water


Famous Jurassic pterosaur Rhamphorhynchus muensteri has a suite of adaptations for regularly taking off from water, and a wealth of palaeoecological data shows that it routinely predated (and was predated by) contemporary fish species. Though not a fully aquatic pterosaur, it stands to reason that this animal spent a lot of time in and around bodies of water.
