Feathered T-rex video: Excellent!*

The best video* I’ve seen on feathered dinosaurs.
*But note: their gliding Anchiornis forgot how to flap. Flapping came first. Then flapping with bipedal climbing. Then flapping with flying. Birds don’t come by gliding except to rest while airborne. Same with bats (if any glide ever). Same with pterosaurs. Let’s take gliding out of the equation for the origin of flight. That’s widespread antiquated thinking not supported by evidence. If you glide you do not flap. If you flap, some of your ancestors may learn to glide.
