Pteranodons are large pterosaurs occasionally used as flying mounts.

Pteranodons are fishers, used to hunting their prey on the wing. They do not generally like to fly into a raging melee on the ground, but are more comfortable in the swoops and dives of aerial combat with other flying creatures or mounts.

Carrying Capacity: A light load for a pteranodon is up to 300 pounds; a medium load 301 - 600 pounds; and a heavy load 601 - 900 pounds. A pteranodon can drag 4,500 pounds.

Training a Pteranodon
Training a pteranodon to bear a rider requires six weeks of work and a DC 25 Handle Animal check, and an exotic saddle is needed to balance on the creature's back. A pteranodon can fight while carrying a rider, but the rider cannot also attack unless a DC 10 Ride check is successful.
