Nearly as tall as a giraffe, Quetzalcoatlus is a pterosaur which lived approximately 70 million to 65 million years ago during the Late Cretaceous Period.  It was  probably the largest animal  to fly ever. The paleontologists are yet to confirm if it ever used to have full flown flight but few of them claim that it used  to jump from a high cliff and glide. Another interesting fact is that if it did glide rather than fly, then it most likely obtained altitudes of about 10,000 feet and may have flown as fast as 100 miles per hour. That would have been a sight to see and that’s for sure.
This is a life sized model, being painted by an artist at Blue Rhino Studio in Minneapolis. This photo was originally published in "why pterosaurs were thhe weirdest wonders on wings", in November 2017

A little different Monday motivation from my personal account for you all. Remember that you are alive right NOW. Whatever you choose to do, you get to do as a conscience human being with the ability to create change, to laugh, love, learn and live. YOU are you, there's no one else like you in all the known cosmos. And that, that's pretty damn awesome. ・・・

We are fortunate: we are alive; we are powerful; the welfare of our civilization and our species is in our hands. If we do not speak for the Earth, who will? If we are not committed to our own survival, who will be?"

There is something healing about this picture.
Don't you think so?

Yes, healing because it tell us how insignificant we are.

We are such a self obssesed species, always competing to show who's better.

But, look at this mammal, leisurely enjoying its treat. Does he seem like he gives a woot about us?

In a world full of such beauty, our standing is insignificant. But here we are fighting, competing, criticising and killing just to show the world how special we are. ~ Humans are not the only ones on planet Earth.
_________________________________________

We should take a look at our intentions, our dreams and our need for praise from space. I love the 'pale blue dot' video by carl sagan. It is an eye opener, I watch it every time I'm stuck. I hope we live lives trying to prove we are anything but special.
Love,
The gypsy queen

...() science has found not only that the universe has sterling and ecstatic grandeur, not only that it is accesible to human understanding, but also that we are,in a very real and profound sense, a part of that Cosmos, born from it, our fate deeply connected with it. #carlsagan #cosmos #fatherinlawgiftforme 💜 #guinessextrastout #becausewhynot?
