Archaeopteryx

OK NOW I am finally FINALLY posting some of the last Dino pages from waaaaaaaay back when. Oh dear!!! Seriously though, humble pie and showing my kids that if I started it I FINISH IT!!!!

Here I am FINALLY going back to posting these dinosaur pages… Poor Emanuel exhausted my supply of the easy to research ones ages ago and these posts fell to the wayside. BUT I am committed to post it all. So hopefully someone else can have an easier time finding these gems! Enjoy!

Apparently there IS a dinosaur that is commonly known as the bridge between dinosaurs and birds… well for the most part… and that dinosaur is the Archaeopteryx. This feathered dinosaur from the Jurassic period was found in Germany and while it looks rather birdlike still has dinosaur “bits” like teeth and basic bone structure. They probably flew… badly, may have lived in the trees, were not that large (pigeon) and ate bugs and small critters… Quite the interesting bridge!

Now onto the videos… first we had a video off of SCI you will have to go to the site to see HERE. The second video, the one Emanuel says is THE BEST of ┬áthe day was an origami one!
