Sexy Ornithomimus - Ornithomimus, a dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous of North America, has recently been proven to have feathers. Not only is this the first case of (non-avian) dinosaur feathers being discovered in North America, it dispels the belief that some sediments would have been too coarse for preservation of feathers. Why the title? Scientists say that the feathers were for attracting mates, and that the juveniles did not have large feathers.
