Asparavis ukhaana - This is a bird species that inhabited what is now Mongolia about 80 million years ago, during the Cretaceous period. The first fossil specimen of this species was found near Ukhaa Tolgod, in the Gobi desert. This animal is considered to be one of the direct ancestors of today's birds (other bird 'clades' went extinct) because of the distinct way in which some muscles were attached to its wings. In present-day birds those muscles are attached in a very similar way, but other birds with a similar feature are not found in the fossil record prior to the time in which this species lived.
