Scientist find fossil of 150m year old flying lizard

Posted on Thursday, March 22 2007 @ 11:11:41 CET by

Scientists have found a 150-million year old fossil in China of a lizard-like create that could fly through the air using a winglike membrane stretches across elongated ribs.
Dubbed Xianglong zhaoi, the gliding lizard lived during the Early Cretaceous period, about 150 million years ago. The specimen, detailed Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, is about 6 inches (15.5 centimeters) long, and its immature features suggest it died at a young age.

The fossil, described by Xing Xu of Shenyang Normal University in China and his colleagues, was discovered in northeastern China's Liaoning Province, a site that has yielded a treasure trove of feathered dinosaurs and early bird remains in recent years.
