[dinosaur] 12th Archaeopteryx presented to public for museum display
I posted some news items earlier today on the DML about the Archaeopteryx fossil about to go on public display at the new Dinosaurier-Freiluftmuseum Altmühltal in Denkendorf in Germany. Here is a news story that goes into more detail and has a video. You can download the article as a pdf at the bottom.
This specimen is the 12th Archaeopteryx that was in the news back in 2014. The fossil specimen was originally found in 2010 in fragmented condition and took great effort to prepare and piece together as it now appears. An ammonite is preserved on the slab. As mentioned in the earlier DML post, this Archaeopteryx is currently the geologically oldest known specimen.
