Megalancosaurus

 

This primitive diapsid had features that were undoubtedly adaptations to a tree-climhing lifestyle. The bird-like nature of its forelimbs and the superficial resemblance of the big- eyed, pointed-jaw skull to that of a bird, as well as the bird-like way the skull is articulated with the neck, have led some to suggest that this may be the ancestors of the birds, a view not widely accepted. It may have evolved its bird-like features independently, as adaptations to life in the branches of trees.walking dinosaur costume
