Jurassic: Pterosaur Monkeydactyl and Ginkgo

 
Illustration of two 'Monkeydactyls' climbing in the boughs of a Ginkgo tree.
 
Newly described flying reptile 'Monkeydactyl'  Kunpengopterus antipollicatus (opposite thumbed) is thought to have lived in the Jurassic period.
This pterosaur lived its life among the trees, hunting for bugs and climbing with the help of its two opposable thumbs — one on each of its three-fingered hands.  
It is the first known pterosaur found in China with an opposed thumb.

Naomi Berrill plays "Ginkgo biloba"

 Naomi Berrill plays "Ginkgo biloba"

 

Naomi is an Irish cellist and singer, now living in Italy.

 "Ginkgo biloba" is inspired by the poem by the German poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (on my website)

Like the leaves of this tree - made up of different parts - the piece also consists of different elements, combining music, poetry and nature.
