Description

Look, they can fly!

I wish paleontologists would just go and find a perfectly preserved ornithopod with integument allready, so we don't have to do all this kind of excrutiating guesswork.
Bony scutes on Thescelosaurus more likely do not belong to the species, so, no armor, instead knobby skin seem to indicate fuzzyness, which is further corroborated by (distantly related) Kulindadromeus, as well as bristles known from other species (Psittacosaurus and possssibly Scutellosaurus, correct me if I'm wrong, I can't seem to re-find where I found it o_-)

Anyway, look, they're flying!

There is no evidence of the presence of filaments in Scutellosaurus. Maybe you confused it with Tianyulong.

Good job. I like small ornithischians with protofeathers, they look much more interesting than scaly ones. :) (Smile)
