Flying dinosaur with 14in jaw and 100 sharp teeth found by amateur fossil hunter

A new species of flying dinosaur has been discovered – it had a 9ft wingspan, more than 100 razor-sharp teeth and dominated the skies 95 million years ago.

The 14-inch long lower jaw of the imposing reptile was discovered on a building site by an amateur fossil hunter.

Amazingly, two of its teeth were still present and experts were able to analyse it and produce an artists impression of what the beast looked like. Paleontologists are now hailing the discovery as ‘remarkable’.
