Caption: Caudipteryx sp. dinosaur, computer artwork. This small bird-like dinosaur, whose name means 'tail feather', lived in the early Cretaceous period, about 125 to 130 million years ago. Although this animal had feathers it could not fly, and instead ran on its powerful hind legs. Its feathers were used for insulation, and maybe display purposes, only. Caudipteryx was an omnivore that reached approximately 80 centimetres in length. Some scientists see Caudipteryx as a link between reptiles and birds, however some believe that it is a descendent of more ancient birds.
