Where to find Shiny Aerodactyl in Pokemon Go?

There are a number of Pokemons in Pokemon Go that can be matched by defeating them in a raid. In this case, if a player defeats the Mega Aerodactyl in mega raids, they can catch a normal Aerodactyl at the end. However, players still stand a chance to encounter and catch a Shiny Aerodactyl. Keep in mind that Shiny Pokemons are much harder to get in Pokemon Go than regular Pokemons and hence, a player might have to defeat multiple Mega Aerodactyl in mega raids to encounter a Shiny Aerodactyl. Nevertheless, as and when players catch a Shiny Aerodactly, they can evolve it into a shiny version of the Mega Aerodactyl. To do so, a player needs enough Mega Aerodactyl candy that can be collected by completing specific research tasks and taking part in other special events.
