Show evolving as science throws up ideas
They have also upgraded the dinosaurs in the current Walkingwith Dinosaurs production coming to Perth Arena from April 17 to 19.
“We’ve taken on the idea that’s been around a little while that a lot of the dinosaurs were feathered,” Tilders said. “So we’ve put feathers on some of the raptors and even the large mamma T-Rex has some quills and feathers.
“I think a few of us, particularly Philip Miller who is our resident dino nerd, were aware that feathers were being talked about when we first did the show, but back then we were basing it on the original BBC series.
“Some ideas take a while to cement and become commonly accepted and in that time it’s become absolutely accepted that a lot of dinosaurs had feathers.
“Although how many that did and how many feathers they had is still up for debate.”
