Hi dino-list members,
I'm not a specialist, so I'm trying to see which theropods can have been feathered or not.
I think my essay could be useful for some members.
So I'd ask you to correct me if I'm wrong.
--- Maniraptorians, ornithomimmosaurs, troodontids,
--- Coelurus (?)
--- Allosaurus chicks (?)
--- T-rex chicks (?)... (did I forget something?)
Most of them seem to have worn only protofeathers.
But we got real feathers like birds' ones on:
--- Confuciusornis (this one is still a bird) and species near it,
(did I forget something?)
And what about the accurence of real feathers on adult
--- Therizinosaurus,... ?
--- all Late Triassic dinosaurs,
--- Syntarsus, Dilophosaurus,
--- all large theropods. (did I forget something?)
Many thanks in advance for your help,
