The record-holder for largest animal with fossilised feathers, Yutyrannus was 7 or 8 metres in length and preserved with feathers. It was a tyrannosauroid, the group that includes both the true tyrannosaurs (like Tyrannosaurus itself) and basal animals like Eotyrannus, Dilong, Aviatyrannis and Guanlong.

*Looks up*

CURSES!

this was already a bit predictable on tyrannosaurs feathered creatures.

I'm not surprised... They lived in cold(er) climates, after all...

WE'RE not surprised. This fossil is important because we have something to rub in the faces of people who think that feathery t-rexes won't exist. Well, something relevant, anyway.

I'm pretty sure that currents and global location say that Montana was cooler than China.

They didn't exist at the same times; the world's climate was different.

It's not like it didn't snow. It probably snowed every winter.

Not all dictators were horrible. Unfortunately for spambots, I am.

See, what'd I tell you? Discover a feathered sauropod and soon you'll get a bunch of big feathered dinos. XD

Turns out the area was quite cold at the time, as detailed in the article linked to in this thread.

It looks like the creators of March of the Dinosaurs made a good call with their feathered Gorgosaurus :)
