Four-Winged Dinosaur Is ‘Biggest Ever’
Another fossil surprise from China.
A new four-winged dinosaur has been discovered, with exceptionally long feathers on its tail and “hindwings”.
Changyuraptor yangi was a gliding predator which lived in the Cretaceous period in what is now Liaoning, China.
Its remarkable tail feathers - measuring up to 30cm - are the longest in any non-avian dinosaur.
There were several evolutionary lines of feathered dinosaurs, including the one that later evolved into birds, researchers say.
