  1. Very cool but noting as far as the scientifically accurate part goes... "then we laugh, because we know, you can't prove it wasn't so, oh all in a line, marching through time" etc. :)

  2. Actually, John Samuel they've turned up quite a bit recently - turns out fine shales can preserve colour scales and feather impressions rather well!

  3. John Samuel actually the colour is not preserved directly and it doesn't seem well explained in the article Leece references but the different colours have different shaped melanosomes and those shapes are conserved between dinosaur fossils and modern birds.
    Also in the correct rock type it is possible to see feather outlines in ultraviolet where no feathers are visible to the naked eye. This alone has vastly increased the number of dinosaurs known to have feathers.
