At first glance, Rahonavis ostromi looks like an modern day bird.
But beneath the feathery guise, it is a full-blooded dromaeosaur!
So far, no skull for it has been found, but as all of its contemporaries had teeth,
so Rahonavis probably did too.
It also had a partially fused and stiffened tail of other dromaeosaurs,
and even the famous "killing claws" that are the trademark of the velociraptor.
Like Archaeopteryx, this was nothing less than a flying dinosaur, that was also a true bird,
both at the same time!
