    I wonder if Jurassic Park will do anything.

    I was really hoping Jurassic World had feathered their raptors. Ah, well. Maybe they'll add them in the sequel

    I know the theory had been bouncing around the science world for years, but it's truly amazing to be able to see it. Who knew raptors were such cuddle worthy fluffs? I find it almost funny that what I was taught about dinos back in my day compared to what our newest generations are learning are opposite ends of the spectrum. Almost akin to those that believed the world was flat and ignored the ancients who insisted it was round, till they realized they didn't sail off the edge. Fascinating.

    I have an amber pendant with some bug parts in it, but I'm pretty sure we can't clone dinosaurs with it. Pity. :p

    I wonder if these little feather-duster-sauri cluck like chickens, when they lay eggs.

    I want one as a pet.

    Yeah, I totally agree. The picture above is adorable, minus the talons :yum:. Exactly, great example. I think the gist of it is that people are afraid to let go of that bias. Compare the naked, roaring lizard-monsters of the Jurassic Park franchise with the feathered, cooing, possibly warm-blooded animals that dinosaurs have become to see it's really popular perception vs working definition.

    You never know, hold onto it just in case haha

    Ha! Yeah... I don't think the Jurassic Park franchise would have been as successful if the raptors looked like:

    Or maybe it would have been even better! Hollywood should have given us the chance, dammit!

    Simply amazing. :flushed: I couldn't give Hollywood my money fast enough if they re-released a 'Feathered Edition.' I can picture a horde of fifty fluff-chicks squeaking for blood.
    Real science.

    Yeah, you're probably right. I can picture a cg Dreamworks movie being the first to bleed this into cultural awareness
