Without feathers and blunt claws: Scientists have recreated the most accurate depiction of Tyrannosaurus Rex – news ZIK.UA

Без пір’я і тупі кігті: Вчені відтворили найбільш точне зображення тиранозавра – новини ZIK.UA

A team of artists and paleontologists have created, in their opinion, the most accurate depiction of a T-Rex (Tyrannosaurus). For this they used the latest research data.

The result is a plump gladkosti beast with elegant arm and very low center of gravity. Perhaps the most significant change in this new work – the lack of a Tyrannosaurus Rex feathers. Some experts argue that T-Rex didn’t have, writes naked-science.

“The team worked starting with the skeleton, after spending months on the muscle image. Now everyone can see the result. I was amazed at how much time they spent, and how much attention was paid to detail,” said paleontologist-biologist Scott Hartman, who gave advice during the project

The project was managed by H. G. wells. Palmer. By order of the Saurian video games developers he has studied more than 20 published studies of Te-Rex. In particular, Palmer focused on 2017, published in the journal Biology Letters in which scientists say that this dinosaur was covered in feathers in some places, as previously thought, but on the contrary, did not have feathers.

As with all other discoveries of new reconstruction, the absence of a covering of feathers is debatable, but Palmer and his team believe that they achieved the most accurate images according to the available data.

For example, based on the bird’s physiology, they are placed at the back of the T-Rex keratin plates. In addition, biologists have added extra fabric at the mouth to the jawline to hide the teeth when the mouth is closed.

Considerable attention was paid to detail – down to the blunt claws on his feet (which would be rounded out with constant attacks on the ground) and sharp claws on the upper limbs (which in principle were not designed for anything specific). Big picture, work on which took 320 hours, will be placed in the Museum of natural history and science new Mexico.
