Archaeopteryx Mount w/ Real Feathers

 -Size: 22"L x 24" Wingspan (1:1 Scale)

 -Species: Archaeopteryx lithographica

 ("Ancient Wing of Lithographic stone")
 
 -Notes: Archaeopteryx is a small, raptor-like dinosaur from the European islands of the ancient Tehthys Sea. Considering the exquisite detail of its well-preserved feathers, this dinosaur was originally coined as the "first bird" upon the discovery of its fossils in Bavarian limestone. Though it is unlikely that Archaeopteryx is actually a true bird, it is still one of the oldest feathered dinosaurs known.
 
 -Age: Jurassic Period, 151-146 million years ago
 
 -Location: Solnhofen Formation, Bavaria, Germany
