“Giraffe sized reptilian stork” is the meanest description of a dragon I’ve ever heard

I’ve spent a decent amount of time walking in these particular badlands and I’ve found a lot of petrified wood and bone fragments, including a badass cross-section of a thick bone, spongy looking marrow and everything. I need to bring it by the Royal Tyrell still to see if they can identify it. The fossils wash out of the cracks in the hills during heavy downpour. It’s really cool.

How do we know they actually flew? Like do we find them on cliffsides with no other access?
