IIRC, the Chinese researchers claim that the second, larger specimen of
_Sinosauropteryx_ has much larger feathers than the first, and that these
feathers are "foliated" (which I assume to mean they are ovoid and show a
branching structure like feather barbs or leaf veins).  That would be a
thing to see!

Has Currie or Ostrom had anything to say on this specimen?  Have they even
been allowed access to it?
