So explain why Archaeopteryx, known from a half-dozen nearly complete fossils, isn't a transitional fossil. It is a mixture of both bird traits and dinosaur traits. Even though it is classified as a bird, it is in fact, more similar to dinosaurs like Microraptor that it is to any living bird. It had feathers like a bird, but it had teeth and a long bony tail like earlier dinosaurs. It also lacks a bill, fused bones in the hand, wrist and feet, and the shoulder joint of modern birds.
