It's a huge leap from what they were teaching when I was in school. Back then, they said dinosaurs were reptiles. If they figure out what other dinosaurs, including T Rex, looked like I wonder how that would affect future movies like Jurassic Park. Knowing Hollywood, it probably wouldn't change much. They'd still be lizards. Anyway, cool find.
Found in the feathers of living birds, the nano-size packets of pigment—a hundred melanosomes can fit across a human hair—were first reported in fossil bird feathers in 2008.
