New Find: Large Feathered, Winged Dinosaur Was Close Relative Of Velociraptor
Researchers have discovered a new predatory dinosaur with a big body, short arms, and multiple layers of large feathers. And it roamed Early Cretaceous China 125 million years ago. The Liaoning Province of northeastern China is famous for its feathered dinosaur discoveries. In the last two decades, thousands of exceptionally preserved, downy-covered specimens have been uncovered here, and they work together to illustrate the evolutionary transition from carnivorous dinosaurs to birds.
