A Beautiful Sinosauropteryx Fossil

Some of the fossils from China, such as the little feathered dinosaurs from Liaoning Province are exquisitely detailed.  Below is a picture of the head of Sinosauropteryx which shows some amazing detail.

The head shows the distinctive covering of proto-feathers on the nape of the neck.  Close inspection reveals that the covering of tufts of feathers covered virtually the entire body.
