Ask a Paleontologist #1: Did T-rex have feathers?


Posted: Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at 10:10am

More species of dinosaur have been found in Alberta than anywhere else in the world, and that’s why Dr. Scott Persons moved to the province. In his book, Dinosaurs of the Alberta Badlands, he travels back millions of years to Alberta’s Late Cretaceous period, describing many of the most interesting species that have been found in the province. He also provides insight into the work of paleontologists, describing how fossils are discovered, prepared and studied, and what information can be gleaned from them. There are profiles of some of the most famous scientists and their research, as well as descriptions of the more prominent dig sites.

Dr. Persons is reaching out to dino-lovers everywhere and over the next few months, be will be answering questions about dinosaurs. His “Ask a Paleontologist” videos will be posted to YouTube, the Dinosaurs of the Alberta Badlands facebook page, and on twitter

Merek, from Edmonton, asks if scientists still believe that T-Rex had feathers. Find out here:
