Transformation: Dinosaurs to Birds
How did feathered dinosaurs finally take to the air? When did they become birds? This dramatic transition didn’t happen all at once, as the new exhibition Dinosaurs Among Us demonstrates. The evolution of feathers and flight-ready brains was just the beginning. And those awkward in-between stages include some of the most fascinating animals that ever lived: bushy, feathered tyrannosaurs; birds with lizard-like tails, teeth and claws; and even some small, leaping creatures with four wing-like limbs.
