220 million years ago, back in the Mesozoic Era, it was the heyday of reptiles. They were the rulers of the Earth. The world was full of various kinds of reptiles: marine reptiles dominated the ocean, dinosaurs reigned on land and pterosaurs occupied the sky.

Pterosaurs were the first backboned animals that took to the sky. They dominated the sky for 150 million years. But how did they evolve from reptiles as small as lizards into large flying creatures with a wingspan over 15 metres? Why would they know how to fly? How did they fly? To answer these questions, we shall follow world renowned British naturalist David Attenborough to different parts of the world to look for fossils of the pterosaurs so as to have a better understanding of the evolution of these huge prehistoric beasts as well as their amazing body structures. State-of-the-art technology will be used to unveil the mysteries of pterosaurs that have puzzled scientists for decades.

By using advanced computer animation technology, the Omnimax Show ¡§Flying Monsters¡¨ takes the audience back to the prehistoric world 220 million years ago. It will explore the evolution process of the pterosaurs, make known their lives and the characteristics of different types of pterosaurs. What is more, the audience will soar high into the sky with the largest pterosaur ever and the mystery of how these gigantic creatures could fly will be unravelled.

The film reproduces the skeleton of a Dimorphodon fossil found in the early 19th century. With this skeleton, the audience know how a Dimorphodon made use of the peculiar structure of a finger in its hand to support a wing membrane.

By using advanced computer simulation technology, an early pterosaur appears before the audience. It also helps to explain the difficulties encountered by these long-tailed pterosaurs in walking on the ground.

Tapejara had a peculiar appearance. Its huge headcrest served many purposes: to help manoeuvring in flight, to be used as a sail in water, and for courtship.

With its size similar to a glider, Quetzalcoatlus was the largest animal ever to fly. It stood 6 metres and its wingspan was over 15 metres but it was no heavier than two humans.
