Anchiornis was a small Troodontid 'from china, 160 million years ago.

It translates as "Close to Bird-Type" .

It is the only dinosaur so far to have known color patterns.

It's fuzz was a maze of black and white on the arms and legs, it had a black body and tail, and it's cheeks had orange spots, and most surprisingly, a crown of rufous red feathers.

Named only in 2009, it is a recent discovery. Anchiornis_martyniuk.png
