Aaron the Archaeopteryx
The Binosaur (Bird+Dinosaur)
By: Divya B T3 Science
Aaron is thought to be the first “bird” on Earth. Scientists think of him as the transition between dinosaurs and birds. Most likely, it lived around an area of a coral lagoon. He lived during the Jurassic Period, about 144-159 million years ago. Aaron lived in current day Germany, which is where he was first discovered (to be specific, Eichstatt, Germany).
