Archaeopteryx is a primitive bird-like dinosaur from Europe. This amazing animal is an ancestor of all birds of the air and land and water.
It lived in the Jurassic period and had sharp claws and sharp teeth for crushing bugs.
It soared from tree to tree, it was a great flyer. That helped the Archeaopteryx escape from other dinosaurs.
It was an insectivore, which means it ate lots of bugs.
- Torvosaurus was one of the predators of this feathered insectivore.
- Archaeopteryx was really the link between theropod dinosaurs and birds.
