Re: Psittacosaurid hair!




Well folks, ornithischian "hair" seems to be a
reality. HP Michael Schmidt was kind enough to send me
several nice photos of the integuments on a
Psittacosaurus (?sp).


Let's not count (or discuss) our feathered dinos before they're described... :-)

"...only the ceratopsian _Psitacosaurus_ represents the other dinosaurs, and rumors of its integumentary structures are dubious because artifice is suspected." (p.128; Padian et al., 2001 "Feathered dinosaurs and the origin of flight.)
