Run-flapping005:09, 9 July 2019


"They also attached sets of artificial wings to juvenile ostriches about the same size as Caudipteryx."

This might be my favorite sentence about a study since "we have trained three small horses to walk, trot and gallop on a motorized treadmill."

The study makes me curious though about what sort of advantage run-flapping gave the dinos, if any, beyond it would develop into flight later on in some lineage.
