i have had an idea: at school and when the teacher lets me to,i give a lecture about anything relating to prehistory.How about i give lectures here as well? Also,all lectures are audience request,meaning someone from the class asks me about something related to prehistory.What do you guys think about that?
Just ask what you want me to lecture about.

Did dinosaurs have feathers?
Are there such things as pachcephalasorus?

As for your first question, depends on the dinosaur: small dinosaurs had feathers to keep warm; larger dinosaurs only had feathers either for display or warmth if they were in a polar region, so I sort of against the feathered t-rex idea. Sorry.

As for pachycephalosaurs, they do exist. I consider them the rams and goats of the dinosaurs, using their skull to ram into either their sides or flanks in defense against predators or to establish dominance over a herd or territory. Also, to females, they probably looked attractive, meaning males had their domes brightly colored.

remember that we do not have a full skeleton! for all we know the skull could be an egg or rock and the bones could be another dino's like what happened to the brontosaurus! but for now enjoy :)

Also, these are just my opinions on prehistory related topics, so no arguments please.

Actually most, if not all, Coelurosaurid theropod dinosaurs had feathers including Rex. Also a few basal ornithopods were found with feathers as well. Also feathers don't work like fur, since feathers can also be used to cool down so there's no reason to assume that Tyrannosaurs did not have any feathers. Remember we found feathers on Yutytannus. Also the reason elephants and rhinos have barely any hair is because they had semi-aquatic ancestors. We do however know that certain dinosaurs had scales and not feathers.

Yes, when a elephant sized Yutyrannus has feather, why not a T-Rex? But if I am right the ornithopod feathers aren't the same as the theropod feathers.

Yes. Ornithopod feathers are different from theropod feathers. Though they both share similar materials.

I said it could be! It might even be a stone! Here is another question! How many extinct animals are there that we know so of now?

Because we know many different Pachycephalosaur species I don't think it is a stone.
And if I am right we now hundrets of extinct animals.

Okay lets establish some ground rules:
1. This topic is about you guys asking me about prehistory.
2. No asking other people questions.
3. No arguements unless you want to be reported.

Now then,who has a question for me to answer that relates to prehistory?
