From the 1930’s Hugo Ballin mural in the rotunda of the Griffith Observatory. This fellow is Uranus. He’s really excited about his soup.

Dinosaur Feathers

"It kinda takes something away from t-rex if it has feathers."

You see him moving through the colonnade of tree trunks, huge and impossibly silent. You can’t help but gasp. That was a mistake. He stops and snaps his massive head in your direction, his eyes flashing against his hulking silhouette. He chuffs quietly. You see the plume of breath spill from his toothy jaws. You keep perfectly still. The forest seems to hold her breath. Maybe he doesn’t see you. Maybe that movie was right. But your heart sinks as he fixes his eyes on yours and his lion’s mane of bristly black feathers stands on end. He definitely sees you.

(In other words, feathers don’t take anything away from t-rex. You’re just not using your imagination properly.)
