But did dinosaurs taste like chicken?
With all of last week's news, we somehow forget to mention our obsession with chickens and dinosaurs. But the Washington Post didn't forget.
Last week, the Post's Rick Weiss reported the following:
Protein retrieved from a 68-million-year-old Tyrannosaurus rex bone closely resembles the main protein in chicken and ostrich bones and is only distantly related to lizards', strengthening the popular idea that birds, and not reptiles, are the closest living relatives of dinosaurs.
Scientists may be forced to redraw the evolutionary tree. Somehow we knew it was bound to happen all along.
