Oh, this will be just dandy. Especially with Jurassic World right around the corner sporting the scaly look.

It will be just delightful trying to argue with scientific evidence against 12 year olds who saw a movie.
...And just like that I've realized I've gotten too old for that shoot. :(

Didn't they already find these on the tails of Psittacosaurus?

Arguing on the internet ages one very quickly. Side benefits: apathy which leads to greater calmness and a understanding of what is and isn't significant.

Tianyulong did it first.

Also, we need to do more research. This guy has the same stuff bird feet have, we need to know how the reticulae and scutes work on a more detailed way.
