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 constantly find myself in debates with friends and colleagues about this issue. They always throw this at me "well it isn't possible to know what dinosaurs really look like they're just bones!" And I have to keep pointing out the existence of skin and feather impressions. After that, they just keep coming back to "Jurassic park, Jurassic Park, JURASSIC PARK!" Cause who could argue with the extremely up-to-date Jurassic Park? (made in 1993 by the way)

As a Jurassic Park fan, I am disappointed in them.

Some people want dinosaurs to look and act bad-ass all the time, so they think feathered predatory dinosaurs look un-cool and wussy. These people probably don't fully understand that all dinosaurs are/were animals, and they didn't spend 100% of their time chasing things and roaring loudly. Animals sleep, poop, get sick etc, lots of things that are not bad-ass. People think lions are bad-ass, but male lions have very brief orgasms, people think gorillas are bad-ass, but the males actually have embarrassingly tiny penises (I'm not joking). Animals are animals, no animal is a perfectly designed movie monster.

I think dinosaurs with feathers look even cooler and more beautiful. People really need to get over it. Dinosaurs are not solely movie monsters deigned to inspire terror, they were REAL animals and ACTUALLY existed and science doesn't give a damn about you "childhood". That's how science works, it changes as new evident is brought to light.

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

You can draw whatever you want. In the end, art is art. All you gotta do is leave a disclaimer saying your drawing isn't accurate. That isn't a bad thing. What I hate is people parading around something inaccurate and claiming it is accurate.

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...

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.

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.
