Scientists Discover New Chicken-like Dinosaur in China

A new feathered dinosaur which looks very much like the modern day chicken was recently discovered in China.

The newly discovered species, dubbed “Jianianhualong tengi”, reportedly existed during the Cretaceous period about 125 million years ago. A group of paleontologists found a well-preserved fossil of a three-foot long specimen of the species in Baicai Gou, Liaoning Province in China.
