Microraptor facts

The most unusual thing about this small dinosaur was its feathered hind limbs. The long and tapered feathers came from it thighbones and shine bones and made Microraptor look as if it had four wings. Further studies showed that the hind wings did not have been used for true flight . It is possible they were used for gliding.
