    I know the answer to this. When you look at fossilised skin impressions you can see the type of pores that were imprinted. Cameleons use their pores to change their colour. By opening and closing their pores. Each type of pore reflects a different colour in essence changing its colour. When you look at fossilised imprints (trace fossils) of dinosaurs, we can see skin and pore imprints. paleontologists are starting to get a very good idea of dinosaur skin colouration. This is a new development over the last 15 years and there is conjecture on how arrurate it is but by using educated guesses and proving and disproving of hypotheses we can advance paleontologists knowledge of dinosaurs

    People should also remember that paleontology is not like most sciences. We have to make guesses and then hopefully find evidence to back up the theory but all that evidence may be destroyed or we may not have found it yet.

    Why does eggplant make my mouth, throat and inside my ears instantly itchy? But not zucchini or squash? Aren't they pretty much the same thing?

    Eggplant are part of the nightshade family and so are tomatoes, potatoes and capsicums - quite a few people can be allergic to them.

    You learn something new everyday! I'm fine with all the other things, except tomatoes and things high in acids. They give me mouth ulcers if I eat too many. I never really thought of it as an allergy before.

    Also dinosaurs were not like lizards, there was a huge variety of dinosaurs and nearly all went extinct at the end of the cretacous. A small raptor had evolved the ability to glide this most likely is the species that went on to evolve into birds ( they have even done embroyonic studies on chickens confirming teeth during fetal development). There is also huge amounts of evidence from trace fossils of velocirapters and ovirapters having feathered plumage. Therefore dinosaurs at least were related to birds. However that is like saying a naked mole rat and a giraffe have the same colourations, evolutionary traits and behaviour.

    Well wow! I am blown away! You know a lot about dinosaurs and palaeontology

    My random thought: sometimes on the Internet it's very hard to sound sincere- most of the time I think people would believe I am being condescending, not supportive or positive. Even when I try and be helpful I feel like its too condescending. Imagine having this problem in the real world.

    The real life version is often associated with aspergers.

    Yes i know a lot about dinosaurs and evolution. Your second thing rings true to me too. In real life, instead of a few facts, i would have been helpful talking about dinosaurs for a good few hours.
