I was strangely cheered to see this article in the NZ Herald on the possible colouring of dinosaurs: it seems they may well have been somewhat iridescent with a blue, green or copper sheen. The scientists are now busily trying to find out more.
A quick Google search turned up more on the topic, including a New Scientist article from last year and the revelation (for me, anyway) that most of them may have had feathers.
I must admit that the image of T.Rexs garbed like starlings does rather appeal to me.
Anyway, while the scientists try to figure it out, why not use your imagination and decide for yourself:
For the DYI inclined, you could build your own T.Rex. Perhaps fortunately, this doesn’t appear to be life-size.
Or you could ‘brighten up your life’ with dinosaur shape fairy lights (yes, really). Sad to say, I’m actually finding these tempting – but I will remain strong, especially given yesterday’s post (and absolutely nothing to do with the price – eep!). I’m not sure I can justify these as a ‘need’. If anyone finds any that are solar-powered, please let me know 🙂
