Eudimorphodon is a small primitive flying reptile of the pterosaurs genus inhabited northern Italy territory 210 million years ago. The name means “true dimorphic tooth” similar to Dimorhodon another genus member. Unlike Dimorphodon, however, Eudimorphodon had a double tooth structure. The first fossils of a winged creature were found in 1973, near the Italian city Bergamo, in the Cene commune.

The pterosaur wingspan was the same as its body length (about 1 metre) with only two kilograms weight. The triangular shaped skull was complimented four upper and two lower fangs protruding from jaws front part. Beyond that stretched the fence of smaller triangular teeth. Surprisingly, jaws were very densely packed as for only 6 cm length the total teeth amount was 110. The reptile wings had interconnections to two limbs and a long tail decorated with diamond shaped flap, used as a rudder whilst maneuvering in the air

Eudimorphodon feed included fish, mussels, invertebrates and even insects. Heterodontism helped diversifying the feed types.
