RE: Featherless Velociraptor on Nat'l Geographic Channel Feb. 8

Nah... what really gets me is they've been mispelling Dorodon as "Durodon" 
since 2001...


>But as Dr. Thomas R. Holtz says: "WTF - Where're the feathers?!"  See the
>ubiquitous featherless _Velociraptor_ at
b-Photos/11 .  It's probably yet another case of "Sure, they ought to have
feathers, but it's just too hard to do that in CG."  What a lost
opportunity!  "White Tip's Journey" from "Dinosaur Planet" still gets my
vote for the most authentic _Velociraptor_ in a documentary.
