Tyrannosaur News

This is huge news in the Eli 4.6 world. From MSNBC
Paleontologists have unearthed two fossilized dinosaurs believed to be the oldest ancestors of the tyrannosaur family, researchers announced Wednesday.

The new species had cranial crests and were likely covered in feathers, but were only a third the size of their famous cousin, Tyrannosaurus rex.

Still, the discovery sets back the clock on the tyrannosaur family by at least 30 million years.

Very cool, and the article also says that it's believed the newly discovered dinosaur (Guanlong wucaii) was "as feathered as a chicken."

That's a set-up, by the way.
