A research group of paleontologists from China discovered the feathered tail of a dinosaur. He was immured in a piece of amber, and one of the scientists himself accidentally noticed amber on the flea market in Myanmar a year ago, but the first results of the study were published only the other day. This, however, is not surprising – the theory of feathered dinosaurs can allow scientists to look at the evolution process from a new angle.
A year for reflection
A whole year was required for the research team to draw the necessary conclusions. Now scientists are almost sure: the tail belonged to a non-flying dinosaur, whose size did not exceed the passerine. The age of the find is estimated at 99 million years.
