_Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team
answers your questions about the _World of Warcraft. Matthew Rossi _will be

Let's talk about the Maniraptora. For one thing, the Maniraptora is a very
large clade, including various subgroups, one of which is the birds - this
means that the Maniraptora is the only surviving clade of dinosaurs, since all
bird species are included within it. In addition to birds, the segnosaurs, the
various raptor species (Dromaeosauridae) and the Oviraptorosauria were all
members of the Maniraptora. It's almost certain that all members of the
Maniraptora (indeed, possibly all Coelurosauria) were feathered, with body
plans and bone structures we would find convincingly bird-like.
In case you are wondering this is why I'm so bloody annoyed that in 2015 we're
going to have _another _Jurassic Park sequel with featherless raptors.
Similarly, _WoW_ raptors just irk me now. Put some damn feathers on them! They
had feathers. I get that people refuse to accept that T-Rex had feathers
(although it _did_) but the Maniraptora were even more ludicrously birdlike
than that, because they literally are _birds and all dinosaurs closely ...
