Re: New discovery?



I can read and write Chinese but I think the article is not technically clear.

Translation of some points :
It refers to a discovery of new primitive bird. Unless archaeopteryx , it is toothless and possess a beak. The forelimb is much longer than the hindlimb. The hallux is completely reversed. It represents one of the earliest flying bird with beaks.


However, one point is unclear in the article. It refers Sinosauropteryx as the earliest birds fossils (??). I wonder there is a mix up of dinosaurs and birds in the article ...

The site name can't be resolved on our system. I had to go to samspade.org
and get the IP number, fill in the rest, and I get a 404 error.

If anybody can actually get something from this site more power to ya.
