And the relationship between dinosaurs and birds what about all those feathers? Then there's their coloration which we would 'never ever be able to figure out' until guess what sc

I remember when Brontosaurus was no longer a dinosaur And somewhere along the way I heard that dinosaurs had feathersI was hoping that this book would catch me up to date on recent dinosaur findings and new trends of thought It did do that but I had a har
