I'm sure this mistake was on the part of the writer, not the presenter, but pterodactyls were not dinosaurs. They were flying reptiles that lived at the same time as dinosaurs. For a good rule of thumb, if it swam (like a mosasaur) or flew, then it wasn't a dinosaur. Just a really cool prehistoric reptile.

As an aside, that is a beautiful trilobite fossil shown!
