Was just visiting the new paleontology hall in the +Houston Museum of Natural Science yesterday. It was fascinating to learn that Triceratops had long bristles protruding from the large scales scattered across its body, thanks to a remarkable specimen of mummified skin they have on display there. It seems likely that many (if not most) dinosaur species had functional and/or ornamental feathery body coverings of some type to go along with all the dramatic-looking spines, plates, and horns. They really didn't look they way they were usually depicted by artists just ten or twenty years ago. They looked better!
