Archaeopteryx lithographica, fossil single feather found 1860, (This image shows the original fossil - not a cast.) Archaeopteryx lived in the Late Jurassic around 150 million years ago, in what is now southern Germany during a time when Europe was an archipelago of islands in a shallow warm tropical sea, much closer to the equator than it is now.

According to some scientists, this 220-million-year-old fossil, from the late Triassic era. offers evidence that dinosaurs were not ancestral to birds. An archosaur called Longisquama insignis, a small reptile roughly the size of a mouse, has ignited scientific controversy due to the six vane-like appendages attached to either side of Longisquama's back. Some researchers believe the appendages were non-avian feathers and that early archosaurs were the ancestors of modern birds.
