Just adding more "credibility" to our highly questionable dinosaurs here. How did dinosaurs look? The only way any of us know is from looking at images created by paleoartists, people who specialize in imagining extinct creatures by studying their skeletons. The problem is that skeletons only tell us part of the story, revealing little about layers of body fat, skin type, coloration, and behavior.

Here is what some of the well known animals would look if they were drawn (by a paleoartist) based on their skeleton. Enjoy.

The above images came from the following book.
  • Authors hypothesize that a lot of paleoart is wrong! They claim that current artists are relying too heavily on the skeleton alone, and aren’t taking into account body coverings, soft tissues or muscle structures.
  • The book, illustrated by Scott Hartman, gave some depictions of modern day animals going by their bones alone without accounting for the soft tissue, fat, etc.
