turkey-rex XD by nebezial turkey-rex XD by nebezial
this is why i like the idea of feathered dinos, but at the same time hate it.

i love it for its potential, male dinosaurs doing a mating dance, showing off, it has roots in natural world.

i hate it because it is in human nature to jump to conclusions and take it to the extreme.

by that i mean , they discover hints of some feathers on a fossil, the very next step is to turn every dinosaur available into a fuzzball of feathers XD

i find nature much more interesting and varied, and while some were probably fully covered in feathers others had none, and others again had some .

this is my opinion, just like most of paleontology is based on opinions till proven wrong.

these are in no way shape or form scientific reconstructions, but just one dino nerd rekindling the memories from high school when i used to be obsessed with dinosaurs.


now its all dragons for me XD

When I first read that T. Rex might have had feathers, I thought, "well that would keep them from looking menacing."

I take it back.

Great work!

think it like this: a conjuction ring with reptiles and birds, meaning they might had warm blood instead of cold blood

also, the fact that "traces of feathers" were found in -some- dinosaurs explains the fact some of them had feathers, some in very low quantity, some were covered and some -probably- didn't have

ps. lovely work, i'm gonna watch you

You don't understand. The fact is that only the small dinosaurs like velocirapter had feathers. The larger dinosaurs like tyrannosaurus rex had no feathers at all. Do you understand the facts now?

Yutyrannus was small?

Yutyrannus was second to the first, and was just a bit bigger in comparison. Yutyrannus was the link between the first and tyrannosaurus rex.

What about the therizinosaurs? Beipiosaurus (?) was found to have feathers, if I recall.
