Downy 'don

©Tom Parker
It has become apparent that the discovery of feathers on more basal dinosauriformes has convinced more and more illustrators that all dinosaurs need feathering. This is, of course, not entirely universally true, but it is also not completely without merit. Regardless, the interpretation of Rhabdodon with feathers is unique, but interesting. The idea that it had little chicken legs is a little odd and the wing-like forelimbs is pretty sad looking in general. All told, Rhabdodon looks like a big downy chick with a dinosaur head in this interpretation. Quality work, a little unorthodox, but a good quality interpretation.
