Sexy Ornithomimus - Ornithomimus, a dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous of North America, has recently been proven to have feathers. Not only is this the first case of (non-avian) dinosaur feathers being discovered in North America, it dispels the belief that some sediments would have been too coarse for preservation of feathers. Why the title? Scientists say that the feathers were for attracting mates, and that the juveniles did not have large feathers.
Before you call me an idiot, just tell me how many scientists can say in general terms which fish evolved into a reptile, which reptile evolved into a mammal, and which one evolved into "our" common ancestor?
