Re: Dino Feathers



Published data on basking birds shows that the heat gain is much more modest
than in reptiles, because even lifted  feathers insulate or shade the skin,
while scales absorb solar heat directly.

I am not sure whether any theropod hands are preerved flexed, but drying of
ligam
ents after death may straighten them out.
