Researchers discovered the head of a flying dinosaur that is hardly bigger than a bee hummingbird in a 99-year-old amber. The polished amber piece was found in Kachin Province of northern Myanmar and this exciting little fossil named Oculudentavis khaungraae was from the middle of the Cretaceous period. The amber is sufficiently clear to see many of its features with the naked eye and a hand lens.
