In this question why birds are called glorified reptile explain me in simpler form

Dear student,

The birds are also referred to as glorified reptiles because they are closely associated with dinosaurs. They share many similar characteristics with reptiles, infact their reptilian features are more advanced than that of the reptiles. Archaeopteryx is the connceting link between the two which proves the asked statement.
Some of the similarities are:
  • Both lay eggs.
  • They have scales on feet.
  • They have almost similar anatomical features such as musculature, brain, heart.
Hope this answer will clear your doubts about the topic.
