Four-Winged Dinosaur ~ 

Fossilized remains of a four-winged dinosaur have been discovered with “hindwings” and long feathers on its tail that assisted it in maneuvering through the air and in landing safely. Named Changyuraptor yangi, it was a nine-pound, four-foot-long, gliding predator that lived in the Cretaceous period 120 to 125 million years ago in what is now Liaoning, China. These ancient creatures offer clues to the origin of flight and the transition between feathered dinosaurs and today’s birds.
