Tyrannosaurus rex may be the king of the dinosaurs, but that doesn't stop know-it-all Velociraptor from telling him he looks old-fashioned and needs a makeover. So, with an improved posture, some restyled body parts and a coat of shaggy feathers, T. rex gets a new look to match the latest evidence. From the authors of The Plesiosaur's Neck, The Tyrannosaur's Feathers takes an amusing and informative look at how new discoveries have transformed our understanding of T. rex's appearance since this giant prehistoric predator was first unearthed over a century ago.
