    T-Rex Tissue found - Jurassic Park?

    http://www.livescience.com/animalwor...x_tissues.html
    For more than a century, the study of dinosaurs has been limited to fossilized bones. Now, researchers have recovered 70-million-year-old soft tissue, including what may be blood vessels and cells, from a Tyrannosaurus rex.

    If scientists can isolate proteins from the material, they may be able to learn new details of how dinosaurs lived, said lead researcher Mary Higby Schweitzer of North Carolina State University.

    ``We're doing a lot of stuff in the lab right now that looks promising,'' she said in a telephone interview. But, she said, she does not know yet if scientists will be able to isolate dinosaur DNA from the materials.

    It was recovered dinosaur DNA _ the blueprint for life _ that was featured in the fictional recreation of the ancient animals in the book and film ``Jurassic Park.''

    The soft tissues were recovered from the thighbone of a T. rex, known as MOR 1125, that was found in a sandstone formation in Montana. The dinosaur was about 18 years old when it died.

    The bone was broken when it was removed from the site. Schweitzer and her colleagues then analyzed the material inside the bone.

    ``The vessels and contents are similar in all respects to blood vessels recovered from ... ostrich bone,'' they reported in a paper bring published Friday in the journal Science.

    Nah, I would rather have one for a pet... oh wait, that would probably end up being the other way around. Eh, I am cool with that.
