Here are some facts about a gliding raptor that lived in the jungles during the period of the dinosaurs:

The microraptor was a glider and could fly 300 metres forward for every 100 metres it dropped.

Microraptors would often eat small flying lizards.

The microraptor lived in dense forests.

Microraptors were feathered and had 2 wings on its arm, 2 on its legs and one on its tail so the microraptor technically had 5 wings.

Some of the fossils of microraptor, found in china, were so detailed that you could see the impressions of feathers.

Even with a high tech suit a human can’t match the glide ratio of a microraptor.

Because the microraptors had feathered legs that made it awful on the ground.

Fact of the day: The elephant is the only mammal that can’t jump.

Joke of the day: Teddy bears are never hungry because they are always stuffed!

Riddle of the day: The more there is of me, the less you see. What am I?
