Re: Feather origin hypothesis (for predator evasion??)
I have to give HP* Kinman credit for imagination, but it doesn't seem
likely as an explanation for the origin of feathers, for reasons HP
Marjanovic gave. However, it certainly does sound to me like a possible
function of tail fans. Do any extant critters with tail fans use them in
this manner, though?
* Who started all this "HP" stuff, anyway?
