Anchiornis huxleyi fossil, feathered bird-like dinosaur from late Jurassic, 161-151 million years ago, Liaoning Province, China. Feather imprints are clearly visible around the limbs and the body. In one Anchiornis fossil paleontologists found remains of melanosomes - structures that produce color - and they could infer that these dinosaurs were multi-colored.
