I was just reading Jurassic Park and I was thinling back to The Lost World (I read that one first), and I remebered the part about the color blending carnotaurus. I was wondering why scientists think it can change its colors. I think it might be positive, but I'm a little skeptical. Anyone have any info or theories on its colorful abilities?

Scientists DON'T think it can change it's color...It's just another work of fiction protrayed in JP. Scientists, in reality, have no idea what color dinosaurs were.

I did read it somewhere in a non finction book, but it might have been discredited by now, like T-Rex's vision.

It can be PROVEN!?

No, it can't!  "We believe, based on the evidence we have available to us currently, that ...."  There's no way we can prove anything about dinosaur eyesight.

I guess it is impossible to tell. I am very knowledgeable about all things prehistorics (ever since I was 2), I should've seen tthat this theory was very doubtful.

No, I don't.  And if you're going to speak for the scientific viewpoint, you can't just spout stuff and expect that others will be able to translate what you meant.  Take the time to think things through before you post them, otherwise, you make all adherents of science look bad.

So pointing out that you made a mistake is freaking out?
