That Popular Little Flier
Whether Anurognathus is pictured bat-winged, bird-winged, or strangely thin-winged, it is a strange little animal that has barely poked its head through the popular culture. It has appeared in Walking With Dinosaurs, though as more of a passenger than a flying hunter on larger sauropods.
Additionally, they show up on the BBC series Primeval but in an even stranger capacity. On that show they were portrayed as piranha like flying armies that could devour any creature in minutes, rather than hunting insects and animals more to its size.
