This undated photo of a fossil provided by the Beijing Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology of a new species of tyrannosaur, Y. huali, shows it had feathers on its tail. A new study published in the journal Nature found that Y. huali, an earlier relative of T. rex had a feathery coat, suggesting that the king of dinosaurs may have also been fuzzy.
