Pterosaur video clips and the first video of the new species, the giant pterosauroid, were posted online on Friday, a month after the video was first uploaded to the internet.
The new species is named Pterodactylus bokepsi and was discovered in an amber fossil collected in the late 1970s in the Indonesian province of Java, according to a news release from the University of Queensland.
It was named after its creator, a Dutch artist who is believed to have been a student in the 1930s.
The video, which has since been viewed more than 1.2 million times, shows a pterosaurs leaping out of a tree and soaring into the air.
It is the first time the creature has been captured on video, the release says.
Pterosausaur videos have been popping up all over the world since the mid-20th century.
But this new species appears to be the first of its kind in the fossil record.
The first recorded footage of a pTEROSAUR was in 1873 in the Netherlands, but the new video has the first known recorded footage from a pTerosaur in Indonesia.
The PteroSauroid, or pTERoS, is one of a pair of large pteroaur species that live in South America.
It had a long snout and a short tail that were adapted for jumping, and its arms were long, too.
The newly discovered pTERoSaur was a member of a genus of pterodontid that include the Pterodon, Pteroceratops, and Pteropterodons, according the Australian Museum.
It belongs to the family of pTEROs.
The pTERosaur was about 40 feet (12 meters) long, weighed around 3 tons, and lived between about 120 and 130 million years ago, according scientists.
