My Error (Age of Pigmentation)

I thought the reddish pigmentation comes from Fe2O3 iron oxide. I was wrong.

Looking deeper into the article in the link, they don’t say that iron oxide couldn’t survive, but that the specific pigment found wouldn’t survive that long. I lack the Chemistry skills to verify that claim.

  1. This “meme” used the public domain government photo that I used in my post. The post linked to an article that discussed actual pigmentation in dinosaur eggs. Your assertions are not only a straw man argument, but related to material that you did not bother to do your homework on. Who’s the liar now, Skippy?
