About as much as a flea running into a semi on the highway. These
papers have more holes in them than a decomposing reptile...
As an aside, must dinos have been feathered to have been
warm-blooded? Even in
No, although if you're less than ~200kg it's harder to maintain a
strict temperature range if you aren't insulated (doesn't have to be
feathers; fur-like structures, blubber, etc will work too). The
evidence is overwhelming that most coelurosaurs and all maniraptorans
in that size range were insulated, but it may well be that other small
to medium sized dinosaurs were not as good at maintaining a narrow,
placental-like range of body temperature. Behavior can help mitigate
this to some degree.
