Omg, they found a dinosaur mummy, complete with skin/armour. "the preservation was so good that researchers were able to tell the dinosaur’s skin color by using mass spectrometry techniques to detect the actual pigments. "
@rixx Cool! TIL... The news is a few years old, but still awesome :D https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/mummified-armored-dinosaur-makes-its-debut-1-180963311/
@rixx TIL: Some dinosaurs had a culture of mummifying their loved ones. *scnr*
@telegnom Relatable because I'm often tempted to mummify my loved ones.
@rixx after they died!
@rixx that museum is amazing and highly worth the trip if you end up near Calgary.
(it has less skin than the one you posted though)
@guenther Good to know, thank you!
@email@example.com Second-grade me is both thrilled and disappointed (Because I loved to color in dinos in colorful spots because we didn't know)
@rixx i want to boop its snoot. i want to give it little kisses.
