    Kem Kems feathered dinosaurs?

    Recently I started collecting dinosaur teeth from Morocco and it has completely refueled my childhood fascination with these awesome creatures. I work as an illustrator (amongst other things) and have taken up the idea of making an illustration of the Kem Kem dinosaur fauna. Before I start sketching, I need to know how these creatures looked like. One main thing I need to do is decide what animals I will give feathers. Here are my thoughts. Species I want to include: Spinosaurus aegyptiacus - enormous, probably semi-aquatic animal, so probably no feathers Ca
  2. This piece of amber containing an inclusion of feathers was extensively cracked but had an interesting feature: it appears to show a silver reflective color in a distinct pattern. These tiny feathers have an apparent reflective substance on certain parts of primarily two adjacent feathers that show this pattern. In some angles a silver color is visible. How common is this? Do you think this is an actual color on whatever bird/non-avian dino it was a part of?
  3. Hi everyone! Recently my friend have just bought this. This is Myanmar amber from one seller that we usually trade but he don't have any idea about ID it. So I would like to ask you is this actually dinosaur or bird. What is the best label for it if it hard to ID. Thanks for reading!

    Cast Fossil? Central MN Bird Head Imprint?

    Howdy-ho, folks: I was helping my dad dig a ditch and found this, it's in Stearns County MN. We live on top of a glacial dropoff (top of a rather large Hill, similar to powder ridge if you know the area). It looks like the head of something, with a beak and all. However, am i seeing something that's not there? is it worth my time to take somewhere? If you look at it up close, it has features, and what looks like freaking feathers. There are even symmetrical eye holes, looks like it laid down somewhere and that was it. I did post this on reddit and got
  9. "The tail of a feathered dinosaur has been found perfectly preserved in amber from Myanmar. The stunning discovery helps put flesh on the bones of these extinct creatures, opening a new window on the biology of a group that dominated Earth for more than 160 million years. Examination of the specimen suggests the tail was chestnut brown on top and white on its underside." http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-38224564

    T. Rex integument?

    I am in the process of creating scientifically accurate extinct plush animals, and I had a question in regards to the integument of Tyrannosaurus Rex. I know there is evidence supporting the scaly covering of T. Rex from various impressions from the Wyrex specimen, but I am unsure of the location, size and implication of these impressions. We want to make our animals (while made more 'cute') to be accurate to the scientific finds at the time of their production. However, I must admit a large attraction of the T. Rex plush is that it will have a feathery covering on it's

    BBC article about a dinosaur from China showing a patterned face and striped tail http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-41763478
  13. Genuine fossils with exquisitely preserved plumage from the Late Jurassic and Early Cretaceous of north-eastern China have recently revealed that bird-like theropod dinosaurs had long pennaceous feathers along their hindlimbs and may have used their four wings to glide or fly. Thus, it has been postulated that early bird flight might initially have involved four wings.

    nat-alado.pdf ok,it's from a while back,and thus old hat Some of you might never get enough of well-preserved dinos,like me. some phylogenetic inferences*,the stringent Nature editing,what more do you want? edit: to own the specimen,obviously *" extensive feathering of the pes was a critical modification in the transition to birds and thatthe pedal scales of extant birds might be secondarily derived structures, a possibility also supported by some developmental studies."
  16. The amazingly preserved fossil. Peteya et al./Palaeontology Many birds today are famous for their beautiful plumage, whose iridescence is often used to attract a mate. A new study in the journal Palaeontology has revealed that the very same seductive sparkle existed in at least one type of bird living hundreds of millions of years ago. Excavated in northeastern China, a juvenile critter – no more than 8 centimeters (3.1 inches) in length – was found with its feathers immaculately preserved. They were long and streamlined, and spread out from its back and tail, leading researcher
