Just Big Birds, Really

The dinosaur woman in Montana was cutting up ostriches. They're as close as you can get these days to a T Rex.

I've been trying to picture the T Rex with feathers. I don't think there's absolute proof it had them but the likelihood mounts. Those funny, stunted, little T Rex fore-arms- what if they were actually wings?  I can imagine them with plumage attached, for display.

The more we learn about dinosaurs  the less monstrous they seem. The dinosaur woman's mentor- top man in his field- said he thought of the T Rex as a sort of a vulture.
