T-Rex is a Chicken?
I'm a big fan of all things scary and mysterious but I'm a big chicken at heart. Apparently, I'm not the only one.
A friend sent me an email link to an article that said scientists took protein from a t-rex bone that was millions of years old.
They now have genetic proof that the great, powerful T-Rex is cousin to the chicken.
As an author, I'd have a hard time making up this kind of thing, yet here it is in the news.
I really hope somewhere down the line they don't find humans are related to slugs or worms or something. Personally, I'd rather be cousins to, say, lions or any other animal I can't picture on my plate. How about you? What animal would you like to be related too?
