Building Dinosaurs Out Of Chickens

Building Dinosaurs Out Of Chickens
Jack Horner, a world renowned paleontologist, has spent much of his career working to bring back the dinosaurs. While his attempts to locate dino DNA have failed, he has turned to unlocking ancient dinosaur genes hidden in birds.

As you may imagine, his work heavily influenced the Jurassic Park book and films. Thus far he has found fossils with well-preserved soft tissues and blood vessels, but intact DNA has yet to be discovered. His latest creation (a chicken with dinosaur traits) is being dubbed a "Chickenosaurus".
