…the 'Ultimate Predator' in Feathers.

"The latest fossil discoveries and paleontological research continue to revise our view of the world's most famous dinosaur, Tyrannosaurus rex. An updated depiction of the extinct giant is now on display in a New York City exhibit that's bound to ruffle some feathers.

From the opening room of the American Museum of Natural History's display, where a model of a fluffy, bird-like juvenile takes the stage, to the final interactive video wall of a full-motion, earth-shaking dinosaur, the exhibit is peppered with new insights—and more than a few nagging mysteries.

Post British invasion is my guess--but just barely.

No self respecting T-Rex would ever go out in public looking like that!

That's not what I saw in my nightmares as a kid.

Those aren't feathers, they're hair plugs. When you're millions of years old, you tend to get a little vain about your looks…

Why does it still look like a plucked chicken…?
