More on Dino coloration and feathers...

It's looking more and more like the creatures that roamed the earth some 65 million years ago were far more colorful and visually striking than we originally thought - much more akin to parrots and macaws than crocodiles and lizards...
"We may soon know what colour dinosaurs were thanks to a new study that examined 40 million-year-old fossilised feathers.

These animals are mostly portrayed in uninteresting shades of grey, but scientists at Yale University believe they may soon learn whether their colours were more like that of a peacock or a parrot."
