Educated guessing

Flying reptiles known as pterosaurs ruled the skies duing prehistoric times. They've always been portrayed as clumsy gliding beasts, but thanks to the application of modern technology and recent finds of remarkable pterosaur fossils, this view has changed. Some scientists are now suggesting that pterosaurs were more graceful and manuverable than modern birds and bats.

What I want to know is, did they scream like the one on Jonny Quest?

The thing, I think, was that they craned their necks.
We always picture them with heads outstretched, and that looks pretty unbalanced. But if you imagine them tucking their heads as they flew, their structure seems a lot more sensical.
We should probably clone them... just to find out!
