Caption: Microraptor, artwork. This prehistoric feathered dinosaur lived around 125-120 million years ago. It possessed long bird-like feathers on its tail, arms and legs and may have been capable of powered flight, although gliding ability is more likely. This species and numerous other feathered fossils support the theory that modern day birds evolved from prehistoric theropod dinosaurs.
