  • Uhm... these are not real feathers yet. They are still a type of protofeathers.

  • I’ve always loved Raptors more than T-rexes but they are still really cool (my favourite raptor is the Utahraptor)

  • I want him to go to the burges shales i think they're called. Some real crazy stuff over there from the cambrian period.

  • That's false, new fossils have clear scales and not feathers

  • This deserves a tv show on nat geo wild

  • finally this gets adressed !!! hate it to see dinosaurs that SHOULD have feathers dont in mainstream media but glad they finally tell people that they did have feathers 100%

  • *OREO DONT!*

  • Common sense will tell you an animal that is the size of a bull African elephant did not have feathers 🤦🏻‍♂️, maybe smaller species or even baby T. rex but not a 10 ton adult!!

    • How tf does an elephant have Feathers?

  • Haven't they found imprints of trex skin, which shows no feathers? I believe that mostly the smaller Dinosaurs had feather, if they had at all.

  • You dont know maybe that is a lythronax skulk or yutyrannus because they all are t rex spieces but just evolved into trex

  • i found a fossil by accident in my backyard over 10 years ago and then i lost it. it was a trilobite and i think it was somewhat rare.

  • I wish dinos were alive Wait

  • why does pete look like my moms dad

  • Thank you for doing this episode, I grew up religous and was taught that birds didn't come from dinosaurs. It doesn't take much education to show that transition and I love that you're helping out with that.

  • So sad the great kim jong rex had to bomb and kill the entire dinosaur population

  • I love dinosaurs, but onnne thing, I'm not a believer in evolution :p. Also T-Rex is my fav Dino and I can't imagine rex with feathers.. sorry, maybe smaller dinosaurs. Like archaeopteryx, u can see the outline of feathers, but I never saw the outline on a T-Rex or other dinosaurs...

  • not all the dinosaurs

  • Is that real Fossils

  • Why not just soak it "" the fossil thingy"" to the water or something liquid ? Will it damage the fossils if it's done that way??? please tell me I wanna know🙏

  • Awesome that you guys have been doing Jurassic world videos, and dinosaur videos! I love paleontology, especially dinosaurs I hope to be a paleontologist one day. Also, I adore the Jurassic park franchise, thank you guys for making great content! Keep it up!

  • I found a bone in the beach in summer

  • Stan and.... Soos? Ya watch Gravity Falls?

  • Seeing stuff like this really helps me find out what I want to do later in life because there is so many things to do

  • Good news: the T Rex was found with scales, and triceratops too

  • I love the T-Rex

  • We already know they had feathers...

  • I dont have the patience for that lol.

  • Lol🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • *some dinosaurs*

  • They had something more like quills

  • Not all of them though

  • I'm actually going to be a veterinarian when I grow up Edit: The kind that go out like to Africa and around the world with all the different animal types

  • Who else started watching coyote after wild crats was taken off netflix

  • oh thank you for showing this. i wish for everyone to know about feathered dinos

  • Proof... Dinosaurs died from a catastrophic flood!

  • I found this video great!!! It's awesome, because South Dakota is never recognized for anything.

  • My favorite dinosaur is tarbosares

  • Every T-Rex in the past must of been very proud of their popularity in the modern days nows...😂


  • Sucks to be you they just found out that they weren't covered in feather s

  • My favorite dinosaur is valoceraptor and I grow up I want to be a paleontologist

  • If dinosaurs were birds, and they died 65-million years ago, and birds evolved from dinosaurs, then how did birds survive the global firestorm of the K-T event?

  • I have a question... How are baby dinosaurs made?

  • Pete’s a legend

  • Did I get clickbaited?

  • coyote: today we're gonna die mark: nooooooooooooooo

  • he is a grate guy

  • t rex did not have feathers suprisingly, and I am a huge dinosaur fan and nerd

  • GAHHHHH I cannot explain to you how good it is to hear the man say "wrist" and "hand" of a cat. That's exactly what other animals have, two legs and two arms, we all share practically the same anatomy. ahhh good content

  • Here i got RRRRRRReptile

  • *oviraptor falls from the ground* so much for the beak and feathers

  • On one of these videos I said I wanna be a paleontologist cool other peeps wanna be like me :D

  • looks like a dad and son!!!

  • 🤠🤠🤠

  • Imangine touching the bone of a real life dinosaur that walked on the world

  • Dinosaurs don’t have feathers

  • Recent studies actually show that Tyrannosaurus Rexes did not have feathers

  • I love the Beyond dinosaurs and I find it interesting as I want to be a palaeontologist when I’m older Keep up the good work

  • my favorite dinosaur is anukeasaurs

  • they did

  • Proof that dinosaurs had feathers so a T-rex had feathers and. A raptor 😕😂 so giant bird? Or like the kid on jurassic park said a 6ft. Turkey 😂

  • maybe there is a way to know for sure which dinosaurs had feathers. if it depends not on the size but on the climate and the thermoregulation, then we can say which dinosaurs were cold-blooded or warm-blooded and did they have feathers or not ? does a cold-blooded animal need feathers ? a warm-blooded animal would have feathers/hair.

  • Slight problem with this not all dinosaurs had feathers

  • I like fosols

  • I like fosols

  • The part where you were holding the scream skull was hilarious because I was actually eating Oreos well you said it so that's super ironic and I actually ran out of Oreos and then that happened

  • Patience? I have none...

  • Evolution from one form of animal to another is highly questionable.

  • Oml mannnn i lofe the jurrasic world 1 opining scene with the egg and eye man i love ur intro its like that

  • this is like saying the earth is flat.

    • Spoiled Milk No it’s not this is backed by scientific evidence unlike flat earth that started as a joke that turned into a conspiracy by idiots.

  • Most dinosaurs would not nest on volcanoes because of the poison gas that surrounds the volcano and the gas would suffice suffocate the babys

  • Ok Coyote you ran out of time. Literally got diagnosed with a brain tumor this weekend. Unsubbed unless I get to see the Executioner.

  • Still doesn't prove that the chicken is the descendent of the T-REX!

    • Hisnameis IAM Birds and dinosaurs are related but not the same thing it’s 2 different groups.

  • Why isn't the 'jacket' made a distinctly different colour, like red, to make its removal easier when separating it from the fossil bone?

  • Wow I've missed so much I have to bench watch tonight and watch all the way until the newest one

  • can we dig fossils their to?

  • Age:10 Grade5 Soon to be paleontologist😊😁

  • We already knew they had feathers, we’ve known for decades.

  • What if when i grow up i become a scientist and i can clone dinosaurs

  • Why don't we just clone dinosaurs but we might get kill

  • 🦖🦕

  • Pete is a cool guy

  • @9:09 How Pete said Rrrrr-eptiles.

  • green leaf just dont worry about it

  • Birds are the last dinosaurs

  • More Oreos. AHHHH!

  • How aren't the bones Crumbled up of all that time? Did they order it from Amazon?

  • So where is the proof that dinosaurs had feathers? Click bait!

  • When I grow up iwant to be a father

  • another rapist here another rapist here

  • Perhaps I’m just paranoid but, should they be handling the fossil specimens with their bare hands?

  • Really? So how many centuries does it take him to clean an entire skeleton, if he goes so slowly?

  • WOW! He said the T-word!

  • Shoutout to Pete, I love when someone who is a master of their profession shares their craft with me, it's endlessly fascinating.

  • I thought the triceratops was proven to be false?

  • 7:27 when he stops laughing, that seems a little creepy. He was having a good time then he just *clicks*

  • Dinosaurs didn't disappear, Avian Dinosaurs still exist.

  • ❤️🦖🦖🦖🙏🏼👌🏼👏🏼😃😮

  • When I grow up, I want to be a grownup

  • These videos sent me down a DEEP fossil rabbit hole.
