Thanks to movies, books, and exhibits, the look of dinosaurs is set in our minds. Towering, scaly reptilian beasts, pounding the earth with their giant limbs. And you know? For many dinosaurs, this was how they looked.

But for others? They were far more delicate and agile animals. Bird-like even. And they were covered in feathers. Really? Feathers?

Yes! Feathers!

In the newest OWLconnected General KnOWLedge video, we're going to show you how the opinions on dino appearance have changed over the last 100 years. As well as why some experts were on the feather track as far back as the 1800s! Are you ready to settle this debate once and for all?

We don't know if we can accomplish that, but we'll give it our best shot!
