T-Rex: looking kind of ridiculous

Feathered dinosaurs first appeared in the late Jurassic period, Prum said. The discovery of “dino-fuzz” on the skin of dinosaur fossils in the late 1990s proved that theropods — a suborder of dinosaur that includes Anchiornis huxleyi, as well as Tyrannosaurus rex — were actually covered with feathers, [Yale Professor of Ornithology, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Richard Prum] added.
