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.

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.
