3D camouflage in an ornithischian dinosaur

We sat down in the Senckenberg Museum, Frankfurt, with Dr Jakob Vinther, University of Bristol, to examine the colour patterns of Psittacosaurus. This exquisite fossil has its skin preserved intact and so we’re able to make inferences about the environment in which it used to live.
Paper available here!

We also produced this video describing the methods of the paper in more detail.
