My friend Jack-Bob, an Archaeopteryx, of what is now Southern Germany, recently died. His friends called him by his nickname: ancient wing. Jack-Bob lived 144-159 million years ago in the late Jurassic period. He liked to glide. He liked to spend time perched in low growing trees. Jack-Bob liked to swim and fish in lagoons. Jack-Bob laid eggs. He had feathered wings, large eye sockets, talon like feet with 3 clawed toes, long bony tail.
