Almost All Dinosaurs Were Covered With Feathers [STUDY]

Siberian fossils of dinosaurs dating roughly 160 million years ago suggest that almost all dinosaurs were covered with feathers. Previously, scientists believed that only theropod group of dinosaurs, the ancestors of our modern birds, had feathers and scales. Since 1990s, researchers have discovered more than five species of feathered dinosaurs in China. But they were all in the theropod group.

Fossils of Dinosaurs add a new dimension to the study of feather evolution

The newly identified dinosaur fossils are far removed from the avian lineage, suggesting that feathers were more widespread among dinosaurs. Findings of the latest study were published in the journal Science. Scientists have named the new dinosaur species Kulindadromeus zabaikalicus, which means “Kulinda river running dinosaur.” Fossils were recovered from the Zabaikalsky Krai is the region in Siberia.
