Jurassic World dinosaurs slammed by paleontologists: Nick Allen @ The Telegraph

“Nevermind all those fossils that demonstrate the presence of feathering in all birdlike dinosaurs, or the bony feather attachment knobs present on the arm of velociraptor. Judging from the trailers, Jurassic World has opted to stick with scaly-skinned raptors, scientific advancement be damned.” (Darren Nash)

Thomas R. Holtz, Jr, a paleontologist at the University of Maryland, told CBS News. “Sadly, the dinosaurs in Jurassic World have not been updated with any new information from the 1990s or 2000s or 2010s, and indeed in a few cases are less accurate than in the original movie.”

Oh, good, I’m not the only one who noticed.
