Sinosauropteryx is a compsognathid that was the first feathered dinosaur to be discovered. Sinosauropteryx was described in 1996, and lived in the Early Cretaceous Yixian Formation. In early 2010 it was revealed that it was the first dinosaur for which we know its true color: an orange with whitish-gray rings along the back and the tail. In 1997 it was thought that Sinosauropteryx was the same as Compsognathus.
