Dinosaur Found with Four Wings

It sounds rather scary, until you learn it was the size of a chicken: Researchers in China have discovered the fossil of a dinosaur that has four wings, which they believe to be a crucial link in the evolution from dinosaurs to birds. The “Anchiornis huxleyi” lived 160 million years ago, making it the oldest bird-like dinosaur fossil so far and older also than the earliest known bird.
