    They were not birds, they were reptiles. They were carnivores and indications are that they captured live things like fish. So you could say they were reptiles of prey, I guess.

    Pterodactyls were a species of pterosaur which lived during the Mesozoic Era, beginning 240 million years ago.  They were, in fact, reptiles exhibiting bird and bat-like qualities.  It is now known by scientists that pterodactyls were powerful aerialists with the ability to reach great heights at great speeds.  The largest known pterodactyl was the Quetzalcoatlus with a wingspan of 40 feet, the smallest were known to be the size of sparrows.
