Our team have uncovered an incredible specimen in Myanmar that
has given us a glimpse of life from 100 million years ago - a
piece of amber containing the remarkably preserved remains of an
ancient bird hatchling.
Inside the amber, you can make out the head, tail, and neck of
the bird, but it's the wings and feet that are the real marvels
- the chunk of fossilised tree resin has perfectly preserved the
bird's feathers, flesh, and claws, and gives us insight into a
doomed group of prehistoric species called the Enantiornithes.
