Scaly Spotted Feathered Frilled - Catherine Thimmesh

Scaly Spotted Feathered Frilled by Catherine Thimmesh introduces the incredible talents of the paleo-artist, whose work reanimates gone-but-never-forgotten dinosaurs in giant full-colour paintings that are as strikingly beautiful as they aim to be scientifically accurate, down to the smallest detail. Follow a paleo-artist through the scientific process of ascertaining the appearance of various dinosaurs from millions of years ago to learn how science, art, and imagination combine to bring us face-to-face with the past.No human being has ever seen a triceratops or velociraptor or even the mighty "Tyrannosaurus rex." They left behind only their impressive bones. So how can scientists know what colour dinosaurs were? Or if their flesh was scaly or feathered? Could that fierce "T.rex" have been born with spots?
