The Archaeopteryx is a species of dinosaur that lived during the late Jurassic period and is considered to be a transitional species between dinosaurs and modern birds, as well as the oldest living bird . Although they're extinct, they are one of various animals an animagus can turn into, as well as being a form of the Patronus Charm.



The name Archaeopteryx means "ancient wing": "archeo" means ancient/primitive and "pteryx" means wing in Greek.
