The fossil of a bird that lived 120 million years ago, during the era of the dinosaurs, has been discovered in Japan.

Known as the Fukuipteryx the well-preserved bones that were captured in 3D, and it were discovered out of Katsuyama, which is described as “a well-known dinosaur, according to the British news agency, SWNS.

One of the study’s lead author, Takuya Imai, said that the bird had gray and brown feathers, I was able to shake his tail and flap his wings, but he wasn’t able to fly like modern birds.

“It Is slid or turned to fly for a short distance,” Imai said in a comment that has been acquired by SWNS. “It was flying, but it wasn’t very good at it.” Imai is also to be noted is that the bird originated in a fluvial environment, in a temperate and hot climate with a short dry season.

F. this is the first of a primitive bird from this period of time, in the Early Cretaceous period, outside of China, and the study should be noted. According to the study’s abstract, it’s “the first record of an Early Cretaceous non-ornithothoracine avialan out of the Jehol Biota, and to increase our understanding of the diversity and distribution within the period of time.”

Imai said, not much is known about its diet, and it is “quite possible” that was preyed on by a variety of habitats, from time to time.
