A team of scientists unearthed the “Wonderchicken,” the ancient fossil that looks like a modern bird ever found, dating back some 66 million years ago, before a meteorite caused the dinosaurs to extinct.
They believe this extraordinary discovery may be the missing link between what we know about the age of dinosaurs and present-day animals.
