‘Dinosaurs Among Us’ at American Museum of Natural History, Selected by Mark Dion

This dinosaur, Juravenator starki, is closely related to other dinosaurs that are completely covered in feathers, but Juravenator has a mix of feathers and scales. Different dinosaur species almost certainly had variable patterns of feathering, just like living birds: think of a flamingo’s legs or a vulture’s head, which have no feathers.
