most of the real dinosaurs had feathers. They were basically birds without wings. The T-rex lost it's feathers when it got older though.

Notice in the video they had to use extra mechanical support so the robots could walk without falling down. They haven't gotten the gyros and stability without crutch support. he he

I saw this show a couple of years ago, and I am setr to see it again this month in DC.

It's worth seeing. The T-Rex is very impressive.

The smaller dino's are actually just actors. The larger ones are robotic.
