Like those models and it's a funny adventure here about them.


Question: I know that today we are discussing about the original dinosaurs body colors, but would be a dino totally black?
Like the panthers which hunt primarily at night?

Thaks in advance for your guidance.

This was vaguely the equivalent of a Flat Stanley adventure.

Good one, Chris. Hah! It IS like a Flat Stanley adventure.

Armand, given 165 million years of dinos, I'd be surprised if some *weren't* all-black.

Look at the variety of plumage in current bird species, from all-black to all-white to rainbow, and everything in-between. I suspect that dinosaurs were similarly variegated.

Wonder why nobody paint any of their dinos black.

I kinda prefer the PAPO dinos although their Allosaurus is a bit stylalised ?
I would think most of the predators would have some kind of ambush camo patterned hide or feathers ? The big sauropods prolly didn't need it. sorta like elephants ?
