  Genus Microraptor
Microraptor was a very small dinosaur that lived in Northeast China during the Cretaceous period, about 120 million years ago.

The initial discovery and naming of Microraptor was somewhat controversial. It was initially described based on a patchwork of unrelated dinosaur fossils that had been attached to each other (a "chimeric" specimen) to produce a forgery, and this forgery had been smuggled from China to the United States. It turned out however that within the forgery were the first fossils of Microraptor (other fossils have subsequently been found).

Microraptor has feathers, and is unusual as it has flight feathers on both its arms/hands and on its legs/feet (it also had feathers on its body, and a diamond-shaped group of feathers on its tail). It is not entirely clear how it used these feathers, and scientists have debated whether the animal parachuted from trees or was able to take off from groudn. What is certain, is that in flight it would have used all four wings. We do not currently know whether this is a side branch in the evolution of birds, or whether bird ancestors developed flight through an early four-winged stage (as early as 1915 some paleontologists suggested that birds may have had yet-to-be-discovered four-winged ancestor, which they named "Tetrapteryx").

Microraptor Facts

 
Here is a summary of some of the key facts about Microraptor:
  1. Microraptor was a genus of dinosaur.

  2. "Microraptor" means "small thief".

  4. Microraptor was a Theropod - a member of a group of related bipedal dinosaurs that included the ancestors of birds (although Microraptor was not itself an ancestor of birds).

  5. Microraptor lived about 120 million years ago, during the Cretaceous period.

  6. Microraptor lived in Northeast China.

  7. Microraptor was a carnivore (meat-eater).

  8. Microraptor was about 1½ to 2¾ feet (46 to 84 centimeters) long.

Product Description:

The most comprehensive account of the origin of ancient and modern birds―the "living dinosaurs."

A small set of fossilized bones discovered almost thirty years ago led paleontologist Sankar Chatterjee on a lifelong quest to understand their place in our understanding of the history of life. They were clearly the bones of something unusual, a bird-like creature that lived long, long ago in the age of dinosaurs. He called it Protoavis, and the animal that owned these bones quickly became a contender for the title of "oldest known bird." In 1997, Chatterjee published his findings in the first edition of The Rise of Birds.

Since then Chatterjee and his colleagues have searched the world for more transitional bird fossils. And they have found them. This second edition of The Rise of Birds brings together a treasure trove of fossils that tell us far more about the evolution of birds than we once dreamed possible.

With no blind allegiance to what he once thought he knew, Chatterjee devours the new evidence and lays out the most compelling version of the birth and evolution of the avian form ever attempted. He takes us from Texas to Spain, China, Mongolia, Madagascar, Australia, Antarctica, and Argentina. He shows how, in the "Cretaceous Pompeii" of China, he was able to reconstruct the origin and evolution of flight of early birds from the feathered dinosaurs that lay among thousands of other amazing fossils.

Chatterjee takes us to where long-hidden bird fossils dwell. His compelling, occasionally controversial, revelations―accompanied by spectacular illustrations―are a must-read for anyone with a serious interest in the evolution of "the feathered dinosaurs," from vertebrate paleontologists and ornithologists to naturalists and birders.

  • Used Book in Good Condition
Product Description:
Although consensus exists among researchers that birds evolved from coelurosaurian theropods, paleontologists still debate the identification of the group of coelurosaurians that most closely approaches the common ancestor of birds. The last 20 years witnessed the discovery of a wide array of avian-like theropods that has considerably amplified the anatomical disparity among deinonychosaurians, some of which resemble Archaeopteryx more than Deinonychus. Among these newly discovered theropods that show remarkable bird-like characteristics are the four-winged theropods Microraptor and Anchiornis, and the unenlagiids Unenlagia, Buitreraptor, and Rahonavis. A bizarre group of minute-sized coelurosaurs, the Scansoriopterygidae, also exhibits some avian similarities that lead some authors to interpret them as more closely related to birds than other dinosaurs. With the aim to explore the phylogenetic relationships of these coelurosaurians and birds, we merged recently published integrative databases, resulting in significant changes in the topological distribution of taxa within Paraves. We present evidence that Dromaeosauridae, Microraptoria, Unenlagiidae, and Anchiornis + Xiaotingia form successive sister taxa of Aves, and that the Scansoriopterygidae are basal coelurosaurians not closely related to birds. The implications in the evolutionary sequence of anatomical characters leading to birds, including the origin of flight, are also considered in light of this new phylogenetic hypothesis.

Product Description:
Microraptor was a small, feathered dinosaur that occupied the forested wetlands of early Cretaceous China. About the size of a raven, it had large feathers on its arms and legs. Despite its bird-like appearance, Microraptor also had several features typical of dinosaurs, including rows of sharp teeth, claws on its hands, and a long, bony tail. This dinosaur may have used its sharp claws to scramble up the trunks of trees, and then leaped from the canopy, gliding from tree to tree. Microraptor lived in a forested wetland ecosystem known as the Jehol. The Jehol ecosystem was very rich and Microraptor was an opportunistic hunter, feeding on a diverse range of prey such as insects, lizards, and fish. Like all Safari Ltd products, this figurine has been individually hand painted, features quality construction from phthalate and lead-free materials, and includes an educational hangtag in 5 languages. Realistic, educational, and fun, this figurine is suitable for a range of interests, including collectors, enthusiasts, teachers, and kids. Admire it on a shelf, use it in the classroom, or simply enjoy playing with it. This figure has a wingspan of 7 inches and is 5.25 inches long. It has a bird-like black plumage similar to modern crows and ravens.
