One of the Jurassic park’s star, Velociraptor, were feathered. A new study at American Museum of Natural History had proven it. Forearm fossil found at Mongolia clearly had quill knobbs , bony bumps to which the large secondary feathers of the wing, involve in fligt in modern birds, are attached to the bones with ligaments. Thus , making Velociraptor looking very unusual birds. ” A lack of quill knobbs does not necessarily mean that a dinosaur did not have feathers. Finding quill knobbs on Velociraptor, though , means that it definitely has feather. This is something we had long suspected , but no one had been able to prove,” said lead author Alan Turner, at graduate student of palentology at American Museum of Natural History.
