Colorful dinosaurs?

colorful dinosaurI already had a shock last month when I found out the beautiful stark white sculpture from the ancient Greeks and Romans used to be brightly colored. Now I find out that dinosaurs likely were colorful creatures, as well!?

According to, the skin color of dinosaurs remains a mystery to paleontologists even to this day. Their best bet, however, is that because dinosaurs descended from birds and were diurnal (active chiefly in the day), they were colorful, males more so than the females.
