An Irish Discovery About Dinosaurs

Dr. Maria McNamara

Dr Maria McNamara (University College Cork) and her team of researchers, have made a landmark dinosaur discovery: the first example of a plant-eating dinosaur that had both scales and feathers. The team found remains of the plant-eating dinosaur, at a fossil site in eastern Siberia. This is the first example found of a herbivore dinosaur to have both feathers and scales, and allows us to consider that all dinosaurs may have been feathered.
