The Quetzalcoatlus was the Dino-Riders' answer to the Rulon Pteranodon.  Aside from the different head and color, the Quetzalcoatlus was identical to the Pteranodon.  The Quetzalcoatlus had a button over its tail that would flip its wings up and down when pressed.  Although the actual toy had a head crest, the box art depicted it without one.  The Quetzalcoatlus would finally appear without its head crest when it was re-released as part of the the Smithsonian Institution line and it was renamed Pterodactylus.  Finding this piece without the head crest is somewhat difficult and thus potentially more collectible than the standard Dino-Rider version.
