Chemical Link Between Birds and Dinosaurs


Today, researchers found a very old, almost 150 million years , fossil that is a mix between a dinosaur and a bird. Scientists call this the "dinobird". The fossil is made out of only bone and rock. By revealing this fossil, it shows that it is one of the most important fossils ever discovered. This fossil is called the Archaeopteryx.

I believe this fossil is important. It shows that there are half and half fossilized animals that we have not yet found. I think that it will help us find other interesting species later on. This is the second Archaeopteryx to be found and maybe we will find more. There are still many animals out there and scientists hopefully will find them.
