Re: Feathered dinos

I don't know if I should be the first to mention it, but it was suggested 
numerous times at SVP that Archaeoraptor is itself a chimaera.  Specifically, 
the head looks (to me) dromaeosaurid or troodontid, the torso like that of a 
bird, and the feet like a tiny avimimid or mononykine.  The tail looks like a 
rather unnatural long, stiff rod.

Do with this what you will.
