China discovers winged, feathered ‘dragon’ – CNN.com


.

Beijing (CNN)Around 125 million years ago, a mule-sized dinosaur with a long tail and short, resplendently-feathered wings roamed a corner of what is now northeastern China.Researchers revealed the discovery of Zhenyuanlong suni, a close relative of its far more famous cousin — the velociraptor, after publishing a photo of a remarkably preserved fossil.The relic shows the complete skeleton of the animal, as well as its skull displayed in profile. Clearly visible around the creature’s short arms are a pattern of long feathers, which also appear to have decorated the dinosaur’s tail.”The cool thing here is that it is a dinosaur that looks a lot like a bird,” says Stephen Brusatte, a Scotland-based paleontologist who is one of the co-authors of the report.

Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other ShoeI was wandering around the internet, when I stumbled upon this very interesting article about an all new dinosaur species. The picture, at the top of this article, shows what scientists think, is how this dinosaur looked 125 million years ago. The following images are of the actual discovery, the fossilized remains of the konglong dinosaur.

Above are shown the two two scientists that collaborated on this finding, Steve Brusatte, left, and Lu Junchang.  Our next image shows relic shows the complete skeleton of the animal, as well as its skull displayed in profile. Clearly visible around the creature’s short arms are a pattern of long feathers, which also appear to have decorated the dinosaur’s tail.

As for the name of this dinosaur, the scientist that discovered the remains had this to say;

.

“It is not surprising that co-author Lu added the dragon suffix “long” to the name of his newest feathered discovery.

“We believe it is nice to put some Chinese color on these dinosaurs,” explains Xu, the Beijing-based paleontologist. He says he has also called several of his own dinosaur discoveries “dragon.”

“We are proud that there were some ancient animals living here on this land,” Xu says.”
