    Most small theropods were feathered, though large ones lost them consistently, as should be expected
    Most small ornithopods were feathered, though this was lost fairly early - before the marginocephalians and thyreophorans split from ornithopoda, it seems, with only perhaps marginocephalia preserving it in the form of quills on select lineages, and some late-surviving basal ornithopods, like Zalmoxes preserving them.
    Sauropods lost them very early due to their predisposition for gigantism.
    Most pterosaurs were covered in filaments.
    It is possible that non-ornithodiran archosaurs were also feathered due to suggestions from genetic comparisons pointing that crocodylomorph scutes are derived from filamentous coverings.

      I'm not even sure it's MOST small theropods. I guess you'd have to count them all up and compare.

      >Most small ornithopods were feathered
      No ornithischians were feathered. See:

      https://i.imgur.com/W07avoH.jpg

      They're not. You are reminded of this every thread. Not only do Aphanosaurs and Silesaurids have only scales and osteoderms, but it's possible Pterosaurs don't even have pycnofibers. And pseudosuchians CERTAINLY don't have feathers. It's also likely that ALL "feathers" from the three Ornithischian species that "have" them (Tianyulong, Psittacosaurus & Kulindadromeus) are misidentified plant remains.

      Sauropods never had feathers.

      The direct ancestors and earliest dinosaurs such as Silesaurids and Aphanosaurs ALSO didn't have feathers.

      Pterosaurs may also not have had ANY fuzzy covering.

      Ornithodira is bullshit. Pterosaurs are very obviously not closely related to dinosaurs if you actually look at their anatomy and stop trying to cram them into "feathered animals".

            no, I just think it's dumb that an animal that hops and has tiny front legs would become an animal that launches by using strong front legs and barely uses its hind legs. It doesn't make sense. I think it's paleontologists trying to pigeonhole Pterosaurs into an existing line for the purpose of making a cohesive picture but that ignores that it's entirely reasonable to say that we're not sure at all where they come from. Compare to bats: We don't have any good lineage that makes sense for them to be descended from from how quickly they adapted to flight, just like pterosaurs. That said, I do believe Pterosaurs are archosaurs unlike the other anon. Would be fun if they were drepanosaur-adjacent, though.

              You want to know a little secret? Most early Pterosaur relatives have been extremely misrepresented in the literature. That's why everyone is so confused about the origins of the lineage. There are two features to keep in mind when viewing these suspected Pterosaur relatives:

              1: Front and hind limbs about equal in dimensions, giving the overall impression of a flying squirrel or colugo
              2: An odd dual row of osteoderms down the lower back

              These two traits may sound odd to most people because they've never heard of them. However, observe. This is Scleromochlus from ~235–205 mya. The wide time frame is due to the site it was found in not being temporally well-constrained, but look at that higher number.

                Now here is Ozimek. Something a lot of people don't know is that the author's measurements of the animals (there is more than one recovered) DO NOT MATCH the author's description of the animals' dimensions. The illustration shortens the forelimbs significantly for some bizarre reason, but the actual measurements taken reveal an animal very much like a flying squirrel. Ozimek is from ~230 mya.

                Here's a close-up diagram of the legendary Sharovipteryx. Notice again, just like Scleromochlus, the dual row of osteoderms down the lower back. Pterosaurs appear to lose this trait pretty early on once they become "proper" Pterosaurs. But multiple early assumed ancestors have them. Also of note is that Scleromochlus has long hind legs because it's suspected of being an arboreal hopper and has no known modifications even for gliding yet, let alone flying. Sharovipteryx is from ~225 mya. An interesting feature of Sharovipteryx is that the forelimbs have always been missing or buried in the matrix and no CT scan has ever been performed on the specimen - most likely because it's Russian and anything from Russia is hard as frick to study. Don't get me started on that. But the important point here is that NOBODY KNOWS how long Sharovipteryx's front limbs actually are. The original authors just *assumed* it had little T. rex arms and everyone just copied that forever after. Kind of like how the original reconstruction of Euparkeria gives it a weird sandcrawler nose, which the fossil doesn't show and everyone has just repeated this endlessly for some reason. Sharovipteryx could have had fully formed wings for all we know. Every reconstruction of Sharovipteryx you've ever seen as a "delta flyer" is total made up bullshit. There is literally no evidence it actually looked like this.

                Once you realize all this, you understand we have A LOT more information about the early evolution of Pterosaurs. And they seem to have evolved, like dinosaurs, pretty fast after the Permian extinction.

    Dinosaurs and prehistory in general will always be a difficult topic to study. Millions of year have warped rocks that look like the bones that once were. Skeletons are often disarticulated and incomplete. Even worse than the actual job at hand is finding the money to do the fricking research. Try justifying an expensive expedition that at best will find you a new attraction for your museum, when looking at it from a cost benefit perspective. And you do, because you’re competing with other departments. This all combines into an environment rife with just lazy work and bullshit all over, with the scientists who give a shit left to look a plates and hope the material is accurately represented in these papers. I personally have been digging into some translated chinese papers, and they suck. They ignore the work done by foreigners and even ignore it when they do joint expeditions. This goes beyond language barriers. Then I look at something like the inflatable sacs on Dreadnaughtus, or the rex backing off because of the pterosaurs. Its infuriating because it is the same thing as jacking up the dilo from Jurassic park. Its not for accuracy, its for brand recognition and shock value. I hate it and I hate you

        While discussing the possible negative effects of rampant speculation without a basis in fact being presented as fact on the general population’s opinion of the field, you seem to have missed my point. Someone watching Prehistoric Planet without our obsession of the topic will take it as true. That same person with more interest into maybe cars or music will also be surprised by some of the “new” things they see. And if they then find out that no actually the experts were just making shit up that was feasible for a fun show they will throw the baby out with the bath water and take the field less seriously. The bone wars still gives creationists ammo to discredit the field. Lets not give them more so we can chase childish urges to make dinosaurs more cool or ornate or counter expectations or whatever

          In fact, the earth being round refutes the bible. The all knowing god got the whole planet wrong? Surely it's a metaphor! And so is the law against bestiality, because horses are too pretty to be "beasts", right? Metaphor and reinterpretation lets you do anything you want!

          The bible is a book of man. The church is a house of man. Your "god" was made up by schizophrenic israelites that burned psychoactive MARIJUANA as temple incense and got high for prayer. Your "christ" poured oil boiled with cannabis in it onto people to get them high before preaching. The modern form of your religion was invented by mentally impaired romans who drank wine from lead because it came to them in a dream. Guess which drug correlates with schizophrenia, and what other substances correlate with lowered IQs?

          You follow a drug cult that undershot the age of the earth by over four billion years and actively encourages cutting off parts of dicks and using rape as a form of marriage.

You are lashing out wildly because you don’t know how to discuss this topic. I also really liked prehistoric planet, it is the best dino doc to come out since the walking with series, and it looks incredible. I was successfully able to rope some friends into watching the whole series with me, and guess what, the people who didn’t know that much about prehistory would ask “did they really have those?” Or “is that real?”. And when I had to say “there is literally no way to know this because we don’t have evidence for it” they move on to talking about how good the show looked. Maybe if you talked to more people outside out your online groups about it you would find other opinions.

                Jurassic Park is entertainment for it’s own sake. Prehistoric Planet is supposed to be science communication, a combination of the new discoveries and the improvements of our ability to recreate the past. Going back to Brian Engh, he doesn’t just do digital art, and if he is hired to make a full sized model of dilophosaurus after its re-description it’s a lot harder to hide behind this label of “cartoon” you are latching onto. I personally thought he did a great job on that project, but it’s an example that would conflict with your claim that non of these creative choices could muddy the waters of what we actually have.

                All prehistoric planet communicated was that the morons are in control of paleontology now, and this was their chance to finally strut their downie stuff. And they did, in abundance. Every episode of peepee has scientific accuracy, and more importantly at least one dead baby dinosaur. Back when it first came out I was making lists of all the scientific inaccuracies per episode and it was ALWAYS more than one. There is absolutely NOTHING new presented in pp, except maybe trying to convince people that Dromaeosaurs fluttered down mountains. Everything else was goofy speculation that's already been made fun of for years. But the most damaging part was how strongly apple troons shilled it everywhere online and how hard EVERYONE online supports the piece of shit. This is actual, literal disinformation that has now infected and poisoned an entire generation on the subject of dinosaurs. But scientists "didn't do it" for some reason.

                Oh please shut the frick up, woman. You are here 24/7 for years and you've never made a good post. That's how I know you're a canadian.

                Jurassic Park is entertainment for it’s own sake. Prehistoric Planet is supposed to be science communication, a combination of the new discoveries and the improvements of our ability to recreate the past. Going back to Brian Engh, he doesn’t just do digital art, and if he is hired to make a full sized model of dilophosaurus after its re-description it’s a lot harder to hide behind this label of “cartoon” you are latching onto. I personally thought he did a great job on that project, but it’s an example that would conflict with your claim that non of these creative choices could muddy the waters of what we actually have.

                First of all, Dilophosaurus doesn't have feathers. Second, people keep bringing up Jurassic Park, but what they continuously forget is that that is APEX paleoart. Jurassic Park is literally the peak of anatomical rigor before everyone started tarring and feathering dinosaurs and putting balloons on their asses like baboons. Jurassic Park to this day is more accurate than prehistoric planet, which is wildly speculative and just plain wrong on basic facts. People keep pointing to shit like the Dilophosaurus frill to try to poopoo JP's scientific accuracy. These idiots have never read the book. If they HAD, they would know that Crichton added those details for moral reasons. They were meant to enhance the view that mankind was fricking with forces he didn't understand like being surprised that Dilophosaurs could blind you with venom. There are a few other details that are inaccurate like the Brachiosaurs chewing, but literally no scientist thought they did that and that was a case of executive meddling to make them more cowlike.

          that's not how it works in real life. In real life people can travel to different places, and fossils can often be shipped to different places. And if neither of those options are available, people in other places can send you pictures, CT scans, measurements, and 3D scans of the fossils if you want.

          non-scientists are indeed stuck looking at pictures in papers though. They don't have access to fossils even if they're right down the street though.

        of course the reason the hyomandibula is so interesting to paleontologists and other evolutionary scientists is because it became the columella in amphibians and reptiles, and then the stapes in mammals and dinosaurs, including birds.

        this means early synapsids were reptiles because they had a columella before the stapes. Just like early archosaurs. Both mammals and dinosaurs convergently evolved the stapes.

        This would blow the paleoschizo's tiny little mind if he understood it or cared. He of course does neither.

          You do realize you're going against the mainstream here. And you're absolutely correct in this case. Saying "reptiles don't exist" and that somehow synapsids and sauropsids come from totally different lineages has always been full moron.

          >Both mammals and dinosaurs convergently evolved the stapes.
          Wouldn't be the first thing. Gorgonopsid skulls look eerily like Theropod skulls and close in exactly the same puzzle piece fashion. Both are also thecodonts, which is weird. I've actually been wondering the past year or so if maybe there really is some kind of "thecodonta" as a valid taxonomic group.

        those who can't understand science discuss scientists instead.

        or the scribbles of non-scientists based loosely on science.

        whatever, Wauf has always been deeply disappointing when it comes to actual science. It took you gays several days and multiple failures to ID extant crocodilians. You'd probably still be getting them wrong if I hadn't stepped in and given the right answer.

      No they're fricking not and repeating this on loop will NEVER make it so. If this were even remotely true, it should be possible to turn bird body feathers into scales. It isn't. It never will be. Birds never LOST the scales on their feet. That is Occam's Razor in action, baby. And to even begin to claim the opposite you have to come up with all sorts of batshittery for why feathers can't turn into scales today (cue some moron posting a wood stork). The obvious solution to this imagined problem is that birds lost the scales on their bodies a LONG fricking time ago. So long ago, in fact they no longer even have the genes to PRODUCE scales on their bodies. That's why exactly ZERO (0) birds have ever changed feathers into scales. But there must be some trigger to cover the body in feathers in an animal that has scaled ancestors. THAT is why you can turn chicken feet scales into feathers. Because feathers evolved from scales to begin with and the genetic memory is still in the bird's code. It's also why you CAN'T turn feathers into scales. Because that genetic pathway was NEVER present to begin with. It's pretty fricking obvious this is the correct answer, but feathergays just won't let go.

    I love when feathergays who DO believe the argument against Engh moronation IS that 'feathered dinosaurs aren't scary,' because they usually use video related to make their point. The best part is that it's a video where the dinosaur is completely hidden in darkness and you can't even see any feathers.

      It's even worse than that. Because global warming alarmism has infiltrated everything in STEM, paleontologists don't even relate paleoecology correctly. Consider Hell Creek. There is zero evidence of frost even from the Maastrichtian. The flora is subtropical. The lizard families present are outright TROPICAL, but the average annual temperature is repeatedly reported as around 50° F. They admit that frost is unlikely but they cram this ecosystem into modern prejudices by claiming that the summers never got much hotter than 75° F, which is obviously absurd. These temps are on par with MODERN Alaska (which doesn't have palms). They also claim the rainfall was absurdly low. The averages come out to being similar to NORTHERN OHIO in the modern age.

                Tyrannosauroidea isn't diagnostic prior to the late Cretaceous. It exists, but most of the current tyrannosauroids are very likely going to be reassigned at some point.

          They're not. You are reminded of this every thread. Not only do Aphanosaurs and Silesaurids have only scales and osteoderms, but it's possible Pterosaurs don't even have pycnofibers. And pseudosuchians CERTAINLY don't have feathers. It's also likely that ALL "feathers" from the three Ornithischian species that "have" them (Tianyulong, Psittacosaurus & Kulindadromeus) are misidentified plant remains.

Cladism lacks organization, structure and truth. Only cladists will try to make wild ass claims about imagined dinosaur characteristics like feathers on sauropods with shit like "phylogenetic bracketing" or claim that paraphyly means you can't use the word "fish" or "reptile", because then I'm triggered, despite reptiles being an objectively real, observable part of living, modern day biology.

                I mean how far back are you asking? If you want to be a cladist pedant then technically humans are lobe-finned fish, but nobody calls coelacanths "non-human sarcopteryigians". I'll never use the term "non-avian dinosaur". That's for damn sure. And frankly, I wonder if Feduccia was right all along, because there's still no good idea where the frick birds come from. Archaeopteryx is just there in the fossil record, fully feathered with clawed wings with no precedent. I can say that a lot of featherhomosexual claims are absurdly fallacious. Especially all the "phylogenetic bracketing" horseshit. Most of the groups they claim have feathers don't even fricking have them to begin with so arguing they're ancestral to archosaurs or something is full moron.

                Ok.

                I don't know, maybe you were being genuine. Frankly, I hear this dumb shit every day on this board and everywhere else on the internet. And it's pretty much always an attempt at a gotcha.

                I don't know yet. I like the comparison to Tanystropheids, but there are a LOT of archosauromorphs to go through. I definitely don't agree with David Peters that they're Lizards. But I also am about 90% sure they're NOT archosaurs.

                so that means the earth gets hit by several hundred planets a year.

                paleoart isn't setting out to prove a specific depiction; it's setting out to prove reasonably accurate depictions. The fact that so many different animals across so many different groups have these air sacks shows that sauropods could, too. With how many sauropods there were, it's absolutely possible, thus reasonably accurate.

        All reconstruction is speculation, and there is nothing wrong with speculation. There's literally nothing wrong with it. Declare it as speculation, have tame and conservative reconstructions - but also have more interesting and speculative ones. That's not hard to get, right?

          JP wasn't accurate at all, and it was never the point. The point of JP was that genetics is something that Humanity cannot fully control and trying to resurrect Dinosaurs would result in unexpected outcomes, such as a dinosaur intended to be the park's mid level carnivore exhibit not only being nocturnal but poisonous as well. It intentionally flew in the face of what was thought at the time, because that was the point.

          Then the Dinosaur Renaissance advocates at the time latched onto both the book and the movie, saying "See? Dinosaurs are fast and agile like birds! But, umm, it's really inaccurate... The raptors are too big and blah blah blah." Which completely misses the point.

      Gore isn't the problem with the art of Engh, et al, the issue is the intentional grotesqueness. The vast majority of real animals have gravitas or grace or purpose in their appearance, and the recognizance of this makes them aesthetically pleasing, The ugliest of animals, like the warthog, the hippo, the saiga, the beaded lizard, the marine iguana, the komodo dragon, the stargazer fish, the goblin shark, etc, are all beautiful compared to

Basically that it accidentally gave Dino's a mutation the lay a clutch, after which there are male Dinos and thus a natural self sustaining population.

    I think there's been enough of an outcry about it that the trend will pass within the next few years.

        Don't worry, OP, this trend is now passing, thanks to relentless harassment by people sick of this woke dogshit in the sciences. If you're not looking at rocks, you're not doing paleontology. PERIOD.

        The part of the thread that appears insane to you is mostly paleoprostitute throwing a fricking tantrum that anyone would question anything mainstream. This is immensely triggering to her.

              These are all things you and the other schizos that infest any board remotely related to the sciences need to accept. If you cannot accept these facts, you should frick off to /x/.

              I'm not even sure it's MOST small theropods. I guess you'd have to count them all up and compare.

              >Most small ornithopods were feathered
              No ornithischians were feathered. See: [...]

              Sauropods never had feathers.

              The direct ancestors and earliest dinosaurs such as Silesaurids and Aphanosaurs ALSO didn't have feathers.

              Pterosaurs may also not have had ANY fuzzy covering.

              Ornithodira is bullshit. Pterosaurs are very obviously not closely related to dinosaurs if you actually look at their anatomy and stop trying to cram them into "feathered animals".

                That means there's over 1,200,000 known planets in the solar system and probably another couple million we don't know about.

                so that means the earth gets hit by several hundred planets a year.

                66 million years ago, a meteor roughly 6 miles in diameter struck the Earth. It left a crater 12 miles deep and 110 miles in diameter and caused environmental disruption so severe that dinosaurs went extinct along with the death of an estimated 75% of all animal and plant life on earth.

                Pluto has a diameter of roughly 1,426 miles, or about 237 TIMES the diameter of the meteor that killed off 75% of life on the planet. What do you suppose would happen if an object of that size were to strike the Earth even once, much less hundreds of times per year?

                The only person being reductive and dishonest is you. All I said is that Pluto is a planet, which it is, dwarf or not. Is the sun not a star because it's a dwarf star? You're just mad I pointed out that you were wrong.

                Tell me what I said that was wrong. Is the sun not a star because it's a dwarf star? Do Pluto-sized objects really collide with Earth hundreds of times per year and reset all life on the planet every other day?

                Light does propagate through a medium. It's called "space-time."

        Dinosaurs with feathers or worse, hair are very disturbing honestly.

        The idea of watching a mid size creature that you would almost believe to be a mammal opening its mouth and turning out to be a braindead reptilian crocodile killing machine with serrated teeth rows is quite unsettling

        Almost as much as literal crocodiles growing long legs and walking with their body hanging on 2 legs

        Interesting you post a pterosaur. They may not have had pycnofibers EITHER.

      Women are actually more than "cool" they are extremely important in paleontology. I cannot stress enough how much women have contributed to the progress of paleontology. It is impossible to deny the incredible achievements of women in this exciting field. I agree that having a majority of the say in paleontology is essential for the continued advancement of this science.
