Names of Feathered Dinosaurs

The conclusion that dinosaurs are closely related to birds raised the apparent chance of feathered dinosaurs. Fossils of Archaeopteryx embody nicely-preserved feathers, however it was not till the mid-Nineties that clearly non-avialan dinosaur fossils had been found with preserved feathers. Since then, greater than twenty genera of dinosaurs, largely theropods, have been found to have been feathered. Most fossils are from the Yixian formation in China. The fossil feathers of one specimen, Shuvuuia deserti, have tested positive for beta-keratin, the primary protein in chicken feathers, in immunological tests.
