Are retro '90s Tyrannosaurs making a comeback?
Well, I have to admit it.
It was tempting to draw large tyrannosaurs with a heavy coat of feathers. It proved VERY tempting. But I stuck to my guns and held out on it. Why? I wasn't convinced the evidence would favor it.
I had already seen pictures of skin impressions attributed to the neck and chest of T. rex, and they were scaly. But this wasn't published and therefore people were casting doubt on it (I wonder if they did the same when Yutyrannus photos showed feathers, before it was formally published and described?). Now some may ask what I have against feathered tyrannosaurids, since that is the new orthodoxy in much of paleo-art (just as lizard-like restorations were orthodoxy in the time of Knight and Burian). The answer is actually: nothing. But when talking about giant tyrannosaurids there was no actual evidence of feathered skin. Not only that, but being roughly 1.5 times the length of the still taxonomically controversial Yutyrannus, the largest T. rexes at 12 meters were ov

Thank you very much, and no worries on the reply timing. The post is very on point and affirms my thoughts as well, great job. 😀I can't wait for more insights on theropod facial anatomy from you.

Happy birthday man! Is it too late?

Sorry that I need something from you on or just one day after your birthday, but I have a couple questions:

1.) Remember what I asked you about plesiosaurs killing similar sized animals? Isn't there still a chance that they could still seriously injure animals in their size range on their own, even if that chance isn't particularly fat (especially if their cranial and dental properties are properly designed for engagement with larger animals)?

2.) I can't wait for your post about herbivorous dinosaur (namely macronarian, ornithopod, etc.) bites. When will that come up?

Thanks for birthday shout out!!

For 1) errr look it was probably a nasty bite, the real damage is from the body rolling as the teeth clamp shut. think of it like a titty twister from hell.

2) I recall talking about herbivorous bites with you but I'm sorry I don't have an upcoming post on the subject. Plenty of other stuff I have to do as it is...

Cheers!!
