  • A new species of dinosaur found in China could be the largest flying reptile of its type.

    The skeleton of the Changyuraptor yangi comprises a long tail with 30 cm long feathers, the longest for a dinosaur fossil, according to an article in Nature Communications.

    The adult fossil, which dates back to 125 million years, is covered in feathers. It is the largest among four-winged dinosaurs ever discovered in the microraptors family of dinosaurs.
