The tail of a 99-million-year-old dinosaur, including bones, soft tissue, and even feathers, has been found preserved in amber, according to a report published today in the journal Current Biology.

While individual dinosaur-era feathers have been found in amber, and evidence for feathered dinosaurs is captured in fossil impressions, this is the first time that scientists are able to clearly associate well-preserved feathers with a dinosaur, and in turn gain a better understanding of the evolution and structure of dinosaur feathers.

Good read, this is so cool.

From the picture I thought it was something massive (in size not discovery)
Certainly took a jewellery maker a closer look to realize that there is a prehistoric feathery gift contained inside. What if it wasn't noticed....
How much more is out there waiting to be found and studied.

This is legitimately awesome.

I always wanted to be an archeologist, but I don't think I can handle the long hours at a dig. I love dinosaurs!

Kind of makes you wonder if there is stuff out there "hiding in plain sight" so to speak. World is full of surprises.
