On Thursday a newly discovered species of dinosaur soared onto the cover of "Nature."
The 163 million-year-old fossil of this non-avian therapod was uncovered in northeastern China.
The new species, named Ambopteryx longibrachium, measured 32 centimeters in length and weighed just over 300 grams, with membrane wings supported by a long rod-like bone, which makes it 'bat-like' in its appearance.
