This artist's conception shows the birdlike feathered dinosaur Falcarius utahensis. A mass graveyard with fossils of hundreds to thousands of the animals was found in Utah by paleontologists from the Utah Geological Survey and the Utah Museum of Natural History at the
University of Utah.
The small, 4.5-foot-tall (1.4-meter-tall) dinosaur lived 125
million years ago. The omnivorous creature represents a missing link between earlier meat-eaters and later herbivores.
