Move Over, Littlefoot

A CNN article reports the discovery and naming of a new species of flying reptile. It is named Caulkicephalus trimicrodon, which, for those of you playing along at home, means Caulkhead Three-Little-Teeth. Caulkhead is the nickname for people from the Isle of Wight, and this fossilized pterosaur was found there.

Caulkhead Three-Little-Teeth.

Sounds like a Land Before Time character to me. Better watch out, Littlefoot. No animated dinosaur character is irreplacable. :)
