Giant Pteranodon prey on up to Large size creatures; conversely, they can also be trained as mounts for such. They have developed inside the Hollow World and are not normally found in dinosaur refuges on the surface of Mystara. It likes to catch live prey to bring to its hatchlings. They lair in cliff-faces, mountain tops and other places hard for other predators to reach.
