Headline Muse, 9/15


With a range of them all found together
The question’s now “how?” and not “whether”
And at last, you and I know
Our favorite dino
Was covered in pigmented feather!

    One can only imagine the reply of creationists / IDiots.

    You can paint them with feather designs! Remember to include countershading, which seems almost universal. Banding and mottling also probably came in early.
