What if dinosaurs were more like modern birds and mammals than lizards? The Daily Mail reports on a book where the authors/artists have tried to change the way we visualize dinosaurs, including a handful of illustrations from the book. Instead of the traditional look--modeled after lizards--the authors have tried to imagine them as fat and fluffy with feathers. The authors also portray modern animals based off just their skeletons as is done with dinosaurs, resulting in highly unrealistic images. Right or wrong, it is an interesting perspective from outside the box.
