Tyrannosaurs probably had feathers on certain parts of the body and scales on others

Do we know what part of the body the scales were from?

@The Tyrannosaur Noscoper, that is the general consensus among paleontologists now.

@Sci-Fi King 25, it said that the imprints were from the neck, hip, and tail.  Here is the actual scientific paper: http://rsbl.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/roybiolett/13/6/20170092.full.pdf
