    No, but 3 is a possibility.

    Perhaps DAK can acquire some and clone itself a better DinoLand USA?

    First of all, this is tissue fragments. The chance of them finding an intact strand of DNA is very slim. Even if they do, they still won't know what to make of most of it, since we have never actually sequenced Dino DNA before. If they were to find a preserved cell, however, they may have a chance of finding some mRNA or tRNA in the ribosomes, or maybe even a polypeptide chain, from which at least one DNA instruction can be found (AKA, a sequence of nucleotide bases such as AGAAACGTATG).

    This does NOT mean Jurassic Park. We can't even do true, flawless cloning today with animals that are alive.

    Also, they speculate that they may find soft tissue in a bunch of other specimens, as well. Museums don't really like cutting open one of their possessions, though.

    We should make a flying T-rex.

    It would take leaps in technology not possible today. Perhaps if the DNA was preserved...

    Not if we use ostrich eggs and end up having to create a horrible T-Rex Ostrich hybrid. THat or fill in the holes with bird DNA or other animal types considering most DNA is alike in set up in otherwords human DNA can be a little close to Dino DNA.

    If I can recall, there isn't a way to clone dinosaurs from millions of years old DNA anyway, so Jurassic Park isn't anywhere close to becoming reality!

    The good thing is that this new evidence might just point to some answers finally in the realm of dinosaurs. I mean, we know a lot about them, but even a shred of DNA would open up vast new avenues of discovery!

    And how do we even know that we can splice the genes of a T-Rex and a pig? We can't do that with pigs and elephants.
    Actually, I've never, ever watched South Park. Well, not for more than 10 seconds maybe...

    Ahhh.. I'm being chased by a Tiranasouras Pig... it is huge... and going to eat me.. and then play in the Golf of Mexico for Mud...

    (thought hopefully nothing Jurrassic Park will happen..)

    :lol:

    Great idea! Would that be Jurassic Pork?

    Very interesting and sort of frightening at the same time! If they do indeed find DNA in the tissue, maybe they can breed real dinosaurs to replace animatronic ones! Jurassic Park anyone?

    That's cool. When I was younger, my biggest dream was to be a paleontologist...

    And it was found by that famed scientist who's name is actually schweitzer and not falls

    It says they found soft tissue. It may take a bit to see if the can actually extract DNA from it.

    But yes, it is an AMAZING find. It sounds like it was found due to them accidentily breaking a bone.

    started a topic Tyrannosaur DNA found!!

    It's amazing luck that actual dino DNA was found and that it was even from a Tyrannosaur.
