For the first time in history, a dinosaur tail has been found preserved in amber. It was found by Lida Xing at an amber market in Myanmar. It is preserved very well in semi-translucent amber which shows fine wispy feathers.This discovery has excited paleontologists who, through analysis of the tail's anatomy, have confirmed that it belonged to a dinosaur and not an ancient bird, proving that some dinosaurs did have feathers.

Hopefully this will lead to more discoveries in that area and a better understanding of dinosaurs.
