Quetzalcoatlus northropi, also known as "Northies," were a species of pterosaur in the same genus as the skybax. They were larger than skybaxes and typically didn't bond with riders. They were friendly to humans, however, and often trained for rescue missions, which they were better suited for than their cousins.

Dinotopia: The World Beneath[]

A pair of northies were retrieved by Sylvia Romano to rescue Arthur Denison and Lee Crabb during their final confrontation, which occurred out to sea flying distance from Prosperine.
