Re: Third claw for climbing was Re: Pro(to)avis



I find it somewhat surprising, but--
One "onramp" (love the term) advantage for
proto-feathers I haven't seen mentioned in print is
camoflage, a fashion accessory particularly useful to
terrestrial ambush predators, the overset for pounce
or perch hunting.

Colorful patterns aren't difficult to produce on scaled skin either. Or what do you mean?
