Re: A Jurassic 'beaver'



In Japan (two summers ago) I had the pleasure of examining a large number of Yixian fossils first hand before they were put on display fora temporary exhibit. None of the aquatic sphenodonts, nor the non-theropod dinosaurs, nor the fish, or any of the arthropods had any fur-like or feather-like impressions. Only mammals and some dinosaurs (including basal birds).

Has anybody had ever found a fossil of a group not supposed to be
covered by a hairy structure - says, dolphin, marine reptile and
others - with such subdermal web of collagen impression sticking out
of the body?
