Dinosaurs ruled the planet for millions of years, and they are generally believed to have gone extinct. Yet the reality is that modem versions of dinosaurs are all around us. Scientists have been exploring similarities between birds and dinosaurs, and new research shows that these two types of animals are interrelated.

A new exhibition called Dinosaurs Among Us at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City explores the connections between birds and dinosaurs. It displays new scientific evidence collected over the last two decades.

It examines several features the two species share, including feathers, complex brains, the shapes and sizes of eggs, and the ability to fly.
