The largest creature to have ever flown in Earth's skies had a wingspan of 10.4 meters (34 feet). That's about the size of a bus. It is called Quetzalcoatlus and it was a pterosaur about the size of a giraffe.
Taking off and landing becomes an issue for such a large creature. It is thought that it used the same muscles for flying as it did for taking off, using its wings and a running jump to vault itself into flight. It then would soar like a Condor, flapping infrequently.
