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.

A lot of depictions of feathered dinosaurs look like they have MOHAWKS. Punk rocker Velociraptors, HELL YEAH!

I think feathered dinosaurs sometimes look 'scarier' than those without them x3 i have nothing wrong with people drawing them or portraying them in moves with or without feathers.

Well now I'm kind of afraid to draw dinosaurs. I don't know what most of them would have looked like with feathers or which ones even had feathers. Now people are probably going to nitpick me to death if I draw a dinosaur with no feathers. I'm not against dinosaurs having feathers, I'm just kind of hesitant to draw them now

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...

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!

Troodon is a badass. www.walkingwithdinosaurs.com/s…

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:

This isn't so much about what a film should be like, it's that fanboys shouldn't expect real dinosaurs to look like Jurassic Park ones.

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.

Exactly. You're fighting nostalgia. At least you're not trying to be critical of Wizard of Oz.

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
