Another fine-feathered friend

Tweety's long-lost ancestor?
One can’t have too many friends, especially fine-feathered ones.  It is therefore comforting to know that at least some dinosaurs were fluffy.

A research team from China University of Geosciences recently discovered “a fully intact tail of a 99-million-year-old dinosaur.”  What’s even more amazing is that this tail sported “delicate feathers.”

According to National Geographic, this discovery is a first.  Beforehand, scientists had been unable to clearly link “well-preserved feathers with a dinosaur.”
