Description
The name archaeopteryx means ancient wing. Believed to be an ancient ancestor of modern birds, the archaeopteryx lived 150 million years ago during the Jurassic Period. Though a relative of birds, archaeopteryx had many dinosaur-like features a long bony tail, sharp teeth, and hand-like claws. This enchanting volume follows an archaeopteryx from its birth to maturity. Growing up was challenging for this reptile-bird, avoiding predators and competing for a mate are just some of the difficulties it encountered. This lively book combines an exciting story with fascinating facts.
