SAUROPOD FEATHERS



    Referring to Sinosauropteryx filaments, David Marjanovic said,
"Apparently _branched_ filaments, according to the newest paper (Can. J.
Earth Sci.), so maybe feathers of the same type as *Sinornithosaurus* and
NGMC 91."

    Yes, Mark Norrell showed a nice photo of them yesterday at NASA Goddard
and, indeed, they are BRANCHED.
