Archaeopteryx - Wild Safari

-Size: 4.25" wingspan x 3.75"L

Archaeopteryx shook the scientific world when it was announced in 1861. This small crow-sized creature had large feathers but also retained primitive reptilian features including sharp teeth, hands, and a long bony tail. This ‘missing link’ between reptiles and birds helped to shape our understanding of dinosaur evolution. It lived in Germany during the late Jurassic, 150 million years ago.
