Daspletosaurus horneri, Carr version (raw sketch) by Tomozaurus Daspletosaurus horneri, Carr version (raw sketch) by Tomozaurus
A sketch depcting the hypethesis on tyrannosaurid facial integument by Carr et al. 2017 taken at face value (no pun intended). This includes crocodilian-style skin around the oral margin, including the interpretation of foramina as origin points for integumentary sense organs (ISO's); "armoured skin" on the lacrimal, nasal, jugal boss, and ventral dentary; a cornified sheath on the post-orbital boss. Throat shows an inflatable gular sac as apparently indicated by a lost specimen of Tarbosaurus.

The rest of the illustration bares naken skin, you can imagine feathers or scales there at your own whim.

DISCLAIMER: this illustration is for the purpose of exploration, and to help people understand the end result of what the paper discusses. I do not necessarily agree with it's conclusions.

Nice take on the crocface. What we really need is a tyrannosaur mummy. If only.

This is a lovely sketch. So much detail in it already.

What does this mean for lips, though? How far back did the skin impressions stretch on the face, can I still feather the neck?

So, if this interpretation is correct, we'd be back to teeth jutting from closed mouths again?

Yes, but that is a big "if".

While I too don't agree with the study's conclusions, this is a good sketch, and better than the one seen in the media.

Awsome ! And great way to explain to people : The rest of the illustration bares naken skin, you can imagine feathers or scales there at your own whim.   That is exactly what the field of paleontology need.    If i could add to this particular drawing, i could tell you that there is scales on the cervical and the neck of the Tyrannosaurus rex (pieces found in real life back in 2000 ) wich is a close relative so there is a huge possibility the daspleotosaurus also have the same integument. The rest its up for imaginations as we speak!

Parsimony suggests yes, on most of the body.
