Dinos had feathers. by Pristichampsus Dinos had feathers. by Pristichampsus
I get really sick of stupid people whining about how "feathers make dinosaurs look gay/retarded", or creationists denying they had them. I dont freaking care if it makes them look scarier.

GUESS WHAT BITCHES?

DINOSAURS HAD FEATHERS!

So tough titties, that's what they looked like.

For those who insist that feathers aren't scary, try being chased by an angry swan. It's not fun.

I think feathers make dinosaurs a little scarier, considering most birds are creepy, especially shrikes, as they enjoy impaling their prey before they eat it.

People automatically think feathers equal flamboyant colorful chicken-parrots, but many many birds are brown or grey, and can be very aggressive.

I don't think a  t-rex with feathers would look stupid, mean it's big and bad ass give it  a large headcrest to indimidate and attract a mate bam! even more badass! And of course cute fluffy babies XD how can one not look at a baby t-rex covered in a dawny coat and think that wouldn't be cute?  Mainly using t-rex as an example but I don't think large dino's having feathers is weird, well all over? Yeah that'd be a little weird but a crest or something, nah I can dig that :D

Yeah, big dinosaurs would not need a full body covering unless in polar climates. I honestly think T-rex would just have sparse bristles like a pig, except feathers...

wouldn't it make less awesome, least not in my opinion don't understand why dinosaurs with feathers is such a bad thing, sure when I first learned of it I had to get used to the idea but I didn't get my knickers in a  knot about it

I do not think all of them did, though. I need to check on what species did have feathers and what species didn't...

At least all coelurosaurs (T-rex, Raptors, Modern birds, therizinosaurs, relatives) did. Also many Ornitischians had feather-like integument.

But it's thought that Sauropods and the very first theropods didn't have them.

I do not think they were exactly like a modern bird's feathers though. I think they were more of protofeathers.

Raptors had more advanced feathers (we found attachments for feathers like a vulture's wings in the arms of a Velociraptor), but yes, other clades had less advanced feathers.

As with most things that are far in the past, I'll say this: we probably won't be sure until / if someone makes time-travel. Because until then, we are... pretty much guessing about everything (All pre-history, not just dinosaurs)
Although I am not denying the existence of feathered dinosaurs, indeed raptors look fuckin' awesome with them, but I'm still going be a little skeptical when people say all / most dinosaurs had them.

Not all, no. But we have evidence for most kinds of small dinosaurs had them.

Sorry, I thought that is what you were getting at Sweating a little...  my mistake.
And yes, a museum I went to years ago had a couple of the bird-like dinosaurs, archeopteryx and one other I am less familiar with. To me, small dinosaurs with feathers just fits, they seem lacking without them, in a way.

As much as I love this guy, he needs to accept that things have moved on since Jurassic Park: www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxZG8E…

And I love the feathered dinosaurs from Walking with dinosaurs 3D!

Did you watch the video? I usually like this man, but he seems to be upset about the fact Jurassic Park is not like a documentary and that the dinosaurs of his childhood have changed.

Some of the things he were saying were not even true. Stegosaurus was not as "dumb as a fern", how is that even possible?? And technically, the most primitive birds are flightless birds, so t-rex would be related to the emu, not the chicken.

His childhood is not the same as real life. Oh dear.

I found another cool feathered dinosaur from Walking with Dinosaurs 3D, Hesperonychus! It was chicken sized, and pretty cool too:

I'm allowed to have opinions. It's not just fanboys either, it's the general public who don't know better. And also, people who think feathers "ruin" dinosaurs, because they like the idea of scaly dinos that they saw in books as a child.

But I'm really fighting misinformation. Most people who believe this stuff don't know any better. Science marches on, and it's tough shit if you don't like newly proved facts. Wizard of Oz has no basis in fact, thus there is no need to correct people's nostalgia.

Lets be nostalgic about other outdated things, how does that sound. Stuff like misogyny, homophobia, crustal displacement theory, alchemy, I mean, why fight nostalgia?

You know, I once tried drawing a feathered Velociraptor, followed by an unfeathered one. Whilst I will confess my attempts at feathers just look awkward, what looked even MORE awkward was actually drawing Velociraptor without feathers, having now gotten so used to it. XD

I think raptors and T-Rexes look cooler with feathers. Plus, a lot of people seem to say this stuff without realizing why raptors specifically had feathers; they used their wings for balance while they ripped their still-living prey's guts out and devoured them, pinning them down with their claws

Dinosaurs are not a character design. They were real animals. Being upset about the facts and wanting others to ignore them because they "look better without them" is the stupidest thing I've ever heard.

Just bare in mind that not ALL dinosaurs had feathers. And let people draw how they want to.  If they want to draw a featherless dino, then let them do it without flaming the crap out of them.  Not everyone's gonna focus on accuracy here, and you shouldn't expect them to.
