What did a dinosaur look like?

  1. Can you envision a T-Rex preening her feathers?

    Feathered dinosaurs!

    The early origin of birds is a hotly disputed debate and may be broadly framed as a conflict between paleontologists and ornithologists.

    Unique preservation conditions allowed soft tissues of some of these specimens to be preserved. Many dinosaur specimens that preserve feathers and other types of integumentary coverings have been recovered.
