What does the Jeholornis look like?

Jeholornis was a genus of primitive avialans that lived about 120 million years ago in China.

They were among the largest avialans of the early Cretaceous, with a body length of up to 80 cm.

They had a short and high skull with a few small teeth in the lower jaw, and a short and curved lower jaw that may have been adapted for eating seeds.

They had strong and long arms with short fingers, and short legs with a partially reversed first toe.

They had a very long tail with 22 vertebrae, and a second, fan-shaped tail made of 11 feathers above the base of the main tail.

This unique two-tailed structure is not seen in any other avialan.
