Microraptor is one of the few dinosaurs that scientists have actually found the colours of. Others include Anchiornis and to some extent Sinosauropterix.

From wikipedia below. There are plenty of articles and newspages about the subject if one does a simple google search.

"In March of 2012, Quanguo Li and team became the first scientists to determine the plumage coloration of Microraptor, based on the new specimen BMNHC PH881, which showed several other features previously unknown in Microraptor. By analyzing the fossilized melanosomes (pigment cells) in the fossil with scanning electron microscope techniques, the researchers compared their arrangements to those of modern birds. In Microraptor, these cells were shaped in a manner consistent with black, glossy coloration in modern birds. These rod-shaped, narrow melanosomes were arranged in stacked layers, much like those of a modern blackbird, and indicated iridesence in the plumage of Microraptor. Though the researchers state that the true function of the iridescence is yet unknown, it seems reasonable to conclude that the tiny dromaeosaur was using its glossy coat as a form of communication or sexual display, much as in modern iridescent birds."

Ah, that over-grown bathroom looks amazing! I think you should move the pants into a room with alot of space (Or just some of the plants) And make a mini forest in there :XD:

isn't that the microraptor from Safari? becuase i have a friend from a pet club i'm in that does stuff with the company and they gave me a free catalog and dragon(for some reason they got a big box full of'em), and i think i saw that Mircroraptor in the catalog(dang though, that catalog was more like a BOOK :D ). makes things feel like a small world, doesn't it?
