Dinosaur Feathers Found in 70 Million Year Old Amber

by The Feather Place NYC on September 23, 2011


Scientists have discovered that perhaps Dinosaurs were not the drab creatures they are usually portrayed as, but fluffy and feathered!

Last week in Alberta, Canada paleontologists discovered 70 million year old amber with perfectly preserved dinosaur feathers inside. Different kinds of feathers were found – from the most simple meant for insulation to complex colorful plumage . The amber preserved the feathers so well that they are actually able to discern the color of the feathers which will bring us closer to understanding the way Dinosaurs looked.
