I haven't played Joust in a while, but I thought one needs to kill the ptero
when its mouth was open...perhaps if you can some how land on top of it with
the posterior end when the ptero's mouth is open and attacking????
It is hard to explain what I'm talking about... :) I wish I had my Joust card...
