You two may benefit from reading the first post of this thread, again.
50 pages in... I think we've pretty much settled this thread into it's own little niche, which happens to happily reflect the thread title.
Exactly. That niche is not just reporting on dino feathers, though.
Hey, whatever fluffs yer feathers, but still seems the paleontology thread is the best place for general paleontology articles/news, though.

LOL! I was curious to see if anyone read another reporting of the article:

WHAT ARE THEROPOD AND SAUROPOD DINOSAURS? INCREDIBLE 170-MILLION-YEAR-OLD TRACKS DISCOVERED IN SCOTLAND
Theropoda, meaning "wild beast" in ancient Greek, is an order of dinosaurs including species like the famous Tyrannosaurus rex. Older cousins of this beast were found on Skye.

Originally carnivorous, some theropods evolved to become herbivores, omnivores and even insectivores. Most theropod lineages, scientists think, had feathers in some form or another. Birds evolved from certain small theropods and coelurosauria during the Jurassic period.
Here is the journal report: A sauropod-dominated tracksite from Rubha nam Brathairean (Brothers’ Point), Isle of Skye, Scotland
