The Archaeopteryx IRL
Archaeopteryx is believed to be the most important fossil that has ever been discovered. It looked like a bird with wings and feathers. It’s not known whether or not they could fly or just glide so they are technically not the first birds. They are important because their discovery shows the evolutionary link between birds and non-avian theropod dinosaurs.
