I’ve been a fan of paleontologist Jack Horner since the 90s. How can you not like someone who is all about the T-Rex? He has advanced our thinking about dinosaurs to what I believe is a reality. He was the impetus behind the theory, now well supported, that birds are dinosaurs.
In this TED Talk he shares his childhood dream of having a pet dinosaur, and how this is going to be accomplished by the modification of a chicken into “Chickenosaurus!”
From my own experience, not a good idea. . .The chicken is a violent, pack-based animal with a blood lust that is swift and vicious. You should thank God that hens don’t have teeth.
Listen to the TED Talk.
