Unlike its longer "winged" relative Kuehneosuchus (which may be a species of the same genus or represent a different sexual morph), aerodynamic studies have shown that Kuehneosaurus was probably not a glider, but instead used its elongated ribs to parachute from the trees. A study by Stein et al. in 2008 found that its parachuting speed, descending at a 45-degree angle, would be between 10 and 12 metres per second. Pitch was controlled by lappets (wattle-like flaps of skin) on the hyoid apparatus, as in the modern gliding lizard Draco
The Land Before Time
It was seen at the beginning of The Great Valley Adventure, perched on a tree's branch. It glides away shortly before a Brachiosaurus appears. It is almost identical to Hylonomus and Sailbacked lizard, but can be distinguished by its wing ribs which allow it to glide. It is unknown if it is called a Crawler, a Glider, or something different.
