    out of all the dinosaurs.... the one they might have found DNA too has to be the T-Rex.... why not one of the little herbivores, no the huge flesh eating dinosaur! figures....

    still really cool...

    they should clone them and then raise them as cattle to sell for their meat...
    it`s not the same as a brontosaurus burger, but I`d still eat it.

    I find it REALLY hard to believe that any soft tissue would survive for 65 million years. Ever leave a roast beef sandwich out for too long? Try leaving it out for 65 million years and you`ll see the credibility in this story. Sounds kinda fishy to mee. I think there`s a lot more going on here that we`re not being told about.

    I hear you DJ Jason, but you`re forgetting something. Who`s to say it wasn`t mummified some how? Mind you, I can`t answer how long a mummified substance can exist without breaking down.

    Yeah, that`d have to be mummified to even have a chance of surviving. They could perhaps retrieve DNA from one of the cells, but I`m sure some links would be missing. I think we are alot closer to cloning a dinosaur than we were, but we still don`t have a great chance.

    BTW, facedown, the wooly mammoth did not have an DNA they could extract. I dunno why, though...you`d think the thing would be chaulk full of it.

    freemotion lets not forget the fact that at the time of the wooly mamoth cloning was unheard of and I`m not even sure about how much dna was even known about

    They aren`t quite sure how it happened, but they`re saying that if it was well enough protected from the elements, it`s apparently possible.
