Re: Evidence For a Feathered Velociraptor...

I know it's heresy to point this out - but dinosaurs first had feathers for warmth. And probably also for display.

But I read both the Yahoo news article, adn the Discovery news article, and it's missing some key information.

Where on its body did Velociraptor have these feathers? All over, or just for manes and tails?

"One thing that puzzles me though is why these little dinosaurs have feathery structures on them (including their forelimbs) when they obviously can't begin to fly.
