A newly discovered species of prehistoric flying reptile was named after satirical artist Gerald Scarfe today.
The political cartoonist was chosen because of his caricatures of Margaret Thatcher which depicted her as a pointy-nosed “Torydactyl“.

The pterosaur, discovered by a University of Portsmouth palaeontologist, has been named Cuspicephalus scarfi.
