Archaeopteryx lithographica First Bird MODEL Berlin Specimen

This is a scaled down detailed sculpture of Archaeopteryx one of the most famous fossils in the world. It was in fact a small dinosaur with feathers with other bird like anatomy. Paleontologists view Archaeopteryx as a transitional fossil between dinosaurs and modern birds. Only about 10 complete and partial specimens have been found. The original fossil from which this specimen is based is 14.5 x 18 inches. (search item 52) This offering is scaled down to be 8.5 x 8.5 inches and comes with a display stand. Think of it as a baby Archaeopteryx. It was found in 1874 in German's Solnhofen Limestone, the Berlin specimen remains the best-preserved Archaeopteryx of those so far discovered. From the claws and feathers on the wings to the teeth in the tiny skull, the Berlin skeleton is a window on bird evolution.
