Skip to comments.Big Chicken with Sharp Teeth

I looked for an existing FR thread on this one and didn't find one. There were a couple of threads from a year or so ago describing the original find but nothing on the more recent news. Researchers in 2005 broke a tyrannosaur bone in half to get it on a small helicopter which was all they had available and found soft tissue inside the bone including what looked like raw meet, blood vessels, and blood. More recently, collagen and proteins from this bone have been sequenced and turnout to be altogether similar to those of chickens. The tyrannosaur apparently was basically just a big chicken with sharp teeth. It would almost certainly taste like chicken.

>>Did that part seem unlikely to anyone else?<<
I think it is unlikely - that’s why it took so long for it to happen.
