New blog post: ecology of (dinosaur) colour
Hi everyone! I finished the third part of my Zoology for Paleoartists blog posts. While the last two were concerned on which colours are possible in non-avian dinosaurs, this one discusses what kind of colours are ecologically plausible - that is, how evolution shapes animal colour. The needs to camouflage, impress mates or warn off predators are different for each species, producing the incredible diversity of colours and patterns in the animal kingdom. Link to the article: https://hummingdinosaur.wordpress.com/2018/07/30/ecology-of-colour-zoology-for-paleoartists-part-iii/ Includes original artwork!

New blog post: a rainbow of dinosaurs
Hi everyone! I published the next part of my Zoology for Paleoartists blog posts. This one also concerns dinosaur colours, but this time, the ones we can't (yet) decipher from fossils. How are yellow, green, orange and red hues formed in bird feathers and skin? And which of these were likely present in non-avian dinosaurs? Link to the article: https://hummingdinosaur.wordpress.com/2018/05/21/a-rainbow-of-dinosaurs-zoology-for-paleoartists-part-ii/ Thanks for all the comments and shares for the last post. I'm glad you find this stuff useful!

What colour were dinosaurs?
After two and a half years (seriously, where does time go?) of silence, I'm reviving my blog, the Humming Dinosaur. There's a new article up about how birds and crocodylians get their colours and what they can tell us about the long-gone colours of non-avian dinosaurs or pterosaurs. Were there blue or iridescent dinosaurs? Did they change colour like a lizard? Also, illustrated with paintings by Dinomaniac (https://www.deviantart.com/dinomaniac) !
