Pterosaur Beach is the name that paleontologists have given to an area along a long gone lagoon near what is now Crayssac, southwestern France. The area is notable because it is the first time that the fossil footprints of a landing pterosaur have been discovered. The fossil footprints are approximately 140 million years old.
The site has hundreds of fossilized pterosaur trackways.
The discovery was made by Jean-Michel Mazin from the University of Lyon.
