Fact of the Day: Bird Dinosaur

Most dinosaur artwork shows the extinct animals with very reptile-like skin. However in recent years it's been discovered that some dinosaurs certainly had feathers like modern-day birds which themselves are descended from avian dinosaurs.

I'm trying to imagine Tyrannosaurus Rex with feathers. That would be very interesting!

I always wondered how scientists come up with how a dinosaur looked and what color they were.

Dinosaurs didn't go extinct. They got smaller and took to the air. Birds are their ancestors.
