“It’s not the first time feathers have been found trapped in amber, but it is the first time that researchers have been able to definitively link them to a dinosaur.

“It’s a once in a lifetime find,” one of the researchers, Ryan McKellar from the Royal Saskatchewan Museum in Canada, told CNN. “The finest details are visible and in three dimensions.””
