Chris Packham's T Rex
calico_pye


I am an avid fan of Chris Packham and was thrilled to find he had done a documentary on the dinosaur.  It is a very good programme and I think forcibly argues how different the T Rex is than first expected, even though I suspect there are areas that allow for some 'plausible' romance in the areas where they cannot to be too sure (I can go along with the featherless bristles, but not a mane - the latter is seen more on mammals, however, as the T Rex's nearest relatives being the bird and crocodile families, there could be room for a ruff).

If anyone can pick up BBC iPlayer, it will be well worth the watch.

Definitely want feathers.
It's basically Chicken Kong.

Did you see the documentary? They did briefly show Rex with feathers, but I think they decided that it wouldn't have feathers as it would overheat. They suggested that it might have had bristles.
