WASHINGTON—The fossils of three dinosaurs with strikingly birdlike features will be unveiled. The fossils, part of a new exhibition at National Geographic Society headquarters, are the latest to come out of China and include a previously unknown species. All three are described in an article that will be published in the November 1999 issue of NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC magazine. The fossils provide fresh evidence that feathers were widespread among meat-eating dinosaurs, maybe even Tyrannosaurus rex.
