nocturnal001: Raptors with feathers might be scary, but a Trex would look simply retarded.As a kid I was a dino fanatic, but as I got older and started keeping reptiles as pets the whole thing was confusing regarding body temperature. Dinos wouldn't be cold blooded and be that large, but being warm blooded without fur/feathers would be a huge waste of energy.
Dinobot: Next thing you know, they'll complain about the stars were not accurate in the sky during night scenes in the Titanic.Oh wait...

ReapTheChaos: Who cares, it's entertainment. Now they'll know how I feel whenever I watch a movie with the U.S. Air Force in it. Just sit there shaking your head thinking; Nope that's wrong. Sorry, it doesn't work that way. Bullshiat, that could never happen.
Albinoman: Also, T-rex, allosaurus, etc. are more like giant crocodiles, not running around on land. Powerful tale, legs built for launching, eyes and nostrils at the top of their head. If you look at a T-rex foot, they look like the swimming foot of a crocodile with long, relatively slender bones. Not the small, rounder bones used to support large amounts of weight. Their little "arms" would seem useless, but are perfect when youre belly down scooting along the bottom of a lake or river.

Mugato: They wrote in a plot device to explain why they could take creative license with the dinosaur designs. They spliced frog DNA with the dino DNA so they're not going to be exactly like the dinos from 30 million years ago. And since they already established raptors as not having feathers, it would be internally inconsistent to suddenly give them feathers in the sequel.You paleo-nerds had hundreds of years to let everyone know that some dinos had feathers. It's too late to whine about the depictions of them now.
CygnusDarius: Erix: LordJiro: JP would totally be paleontologically accurate if the dinosaurs had feathers! Never mind the acid-spitting dilophosaurs and the Deinonychus-sized velociraptors.And the Deinonychus-sized Dilophosaurs..And Dogson.[images.wikia.com image 500x271]

Eternal Virgin: I actually want feathered dinosaurs, just to see how they can make them look scary.

fuhfuhfuh: They have a problem with the lack of feathers, and not the fact that they are making Jurassic Park 4?Talk about screwed up priorities.
Since the early 1990s, when the first Jurassic Park came out, evidence has mounted that many of its lizard-skinned stars in fact wore feathery bling. The turkey-sized Velociraptor and at least some of the gigantic tyrannosaurs had feathers. A few dinosaurs even had iridescent ones, perhaps for display.
