News - Dinosaur 'Silky' Key Fossil in Feather Evolution

Belgian palaeontologists have described a new, 165 million year old dinosaur species from Northern China. Serikornis sungei –nickmane ‘Silky’ – is an important fossil in the evolution of feathers in dinosaurs. Silky had feathers on its four limbs, but could not fly. The discovery suggests that ground-dwelling dinosaurs had feathers, possibly to impress mating partners or to warn enemies, before adapting an arboreal lifestyle or flight.
