Re: Rahonavis, feathers?



From: "ville sinkkonen" <dinomaniac38@hotmail.com>

Really short question, does rahonavis fossil contain feathers or feather impressions???

I don't know how many specimens have since been found, but the original description of _Rahonavis_ (then, "Rahona") doesn't make any mention of feather preservation.
