This is my reconstruction of that feathered dinosaur whose tail was recently found in a hunk of amber from Myanmar (or Burma). Its identity is unknown, but may be a primitive member of the theropod group known as the Maniraptora. I figured that any dinosaur that would get its tail trapped in the tree resin that would harden into amber would probably have spent some time in or near the trees, so I chose to go with an arboreal (tree-dwelling) interpretation, as if it were the Mesozoic analog to a monkey or lemur.
