Bocage-JV-Barbosa-du-1823-1.jpg

José Vicente Barbosa du Bocage
  (1823-1907).

A Portuguese zoologist and politician. He was the curator of Zoology at the Museum of Natural History in Lisbon. His work at the Museum consisted in acquiring, describing and coordinating collections, many of which arrived from the Portuguese colonies in Africa, such as Angola, Mozambique, etc. He published more than 200 taxonomic papers on mammals, birds, and fishes. In the 1880s he became the Minister of the Navy and later the Minister for Foreign Affairs for Portugal. The zoology collection at the Lisbon Museum is called the Bocage Museum in his honor. He was responsible for identifying many new species, which he named according to the naturalist who found them.

Range: Fossils found in France, England, Germany, and Tanzania.

Did you ever see a flying reptile? Probably not, unless you were living 150 milion years ago. You might have seen back then, in the Jurassic epoch, the reptile Pterodactylus antiquus take wing. It had wings formed by a membrane of skin, muscle, and other tissues stretching from the legs to a dramatically lengthened fourth finger. The skull was long with a pointed beak; the bones hollow and air-filled, like the bones of birds. It had nearly 100 teeth and a large crest, curved backward, made of soft tissue. There is a high degree of variance between juveniles and adults, leading to specimens of Pterodactylus often being mistaken for other species. Pterodactylus or "wing finger" is often referred to as a flying dinosaur, but this is incorrect. It is not a dinosaur but belongs to the order Pterosauria or "winged lizards", which are the earliest vertebrates known to have evolved powered flight.
