Microraptor was a small, feathered dinosaur that occupied the forested wetlands of early Cretaceous China. About the size of a raven, it had large feathers on its arms and legs. Despite its bird-like appearance, Microraptor also had several features typical of dinosaurs, including rows of sharp teeth, claws on its hands, and a long, bony tail. This dinosaur may have used its sharp claws to scramble up the trunks of trees, and then leaped from the canopy, gliding from tree to tree. Microraptor lived in a forested wetland ecosystem known as the Jehol. The Jehol ecosystem was very rich and Microraptor was an opportunistic hunter, feeding on a diverse range of prey such as insects, lizards, and fish.
