    Some dinos had feathers, and some didn't. The OG dinos probably didn't have feathers, and feathers evolved later on. The dinos that had feathers became the ancestors of birds, and the featherless dinos were the ancestors of other big featherless lizards.
    That's why there's such a battle over if dinos had feathers or not. Not all dinos had feathers, but not all dinos were featherless. Some people just cant understand that.
    They see scientists finding evidence of feathers on velociraptor bones and think that it applies to all dinosaurs.
    Then some other guy sees scientists finding evidence of a dinosaur species NOT having feathers, and then that guy thinks it applies to all dinos.
    Then they both get into a massive argument, not knowing that there can be one half with feathers and the other half featherless.

      No. Not sure why it's showing that. It's in their skin like our hair.

      yes, sometimes. They attach to the bone with ligaments, and those ligaments leave marks on the bone.

    Depends on the species, the ones that did were mostly mid-to small sized coelurosaur theropods and very basal ceratoprians

    Yes and seeing a feathered theropod fills me with masculine energy like nothing I ever expected to feel looking at a lizard. Every time I see something like pic related I get this urge to do something powerful and go pump iron.

    It’s weird how stuff like crocs and cassowaries never did it. But weirdly, killer whales do.

      Same. The standard giant lizard looks like a kids fantasy toy but gigachad ravens just hit different. No wonder my ancestors drew them as fire breathing killer birds.

      Then again those were the people who burned cats for good luck, expelled the israelites multiple times, and made a sport out of watching dogs genocide rats. Your average jurassic park dino was conceived of by a progressive vegan “cat dad” and they had to all be scaly to prove global warming happens. Obviously it doesnt which is why they had to grow feathers. The globe doesn’t just get warmer.

        Your ancestors never drew them as anything because they didn't know what dinosaurs even are.

            I don't think they were even dinosaur based. Some guy just saw a big lizard and thought it'd look cool with wings and fire. Then the le epic tale of funni lizard spread like wild-fire in ye olde times.

        Why are birdgays such schizos, and why do they feel the need to migrate here from reddit?
