Like a hummingbird: here is the smallest of the dinosaurs in amber
A dinosaur as big as a hummingbird. And what they found, the paleontologists of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (Cas) in fossil amber in the north of Myanmar and discover species previously unknown and is now described in Nature. The dinosaur-bird baptized Oculudentavis khaungraae shows a large cavity of the eye, eyes, lizard, and the teeth small but sharp. It is the tiniest fossil of the dinosaur of the Mesozoic era ever found: just of 7.1 mm.

According to the researchers, coordinated by Jingmai O'connor , who have worked together with our colleagues at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles led by Luis Chiappe , the mini dinosaur - similar to a colibi for size - it was probably a predator that hunted insects. "I had never observed anything of the kind," said the researcher.
