Just Big Birds, Really [Aug. 28th, 2013|10:03 am]
Tony Grist
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.

And there were a lot of different T-Rexy things, small and large, and probably with and without feathers.

The T Rex has became iconic, but some of those other Rexy things were bigger.

I believe Jurassic Park IV is in production now- and there's a debate going on about feathering the dinos.
