    I'm a huge dinosaur buff. The whole reason I am going to college was to become a paleontologist however that dreamed died. I am still majorly interested in dinosaurs though as always but check out this discovery! It has to be the biggest discovery in the dinosaur world ever!CLONE ME!!!

    Amazing. Will they preserve it and try to make one? I hope so. I wish I could work on that project.

    sweet... but how do you suppose you clone it? you need a surregate mot...ehhh.... egg (that's IF they are egg-layers.
    I doubt a croc egg would be good for a t-rex lol.

    Actually they would probably grow it in vitro sort of like tissue culturing. However that's a big if as the DNA would be so degraded and full of holes that it is highly unlikely cloning of fresh tissue samples today is still a highly uncertain process let alone DNA that is 70 million years old.

    Did someone say 'cloneing time'?

    I don't think they can even do that can they? maybe with reptiles... since they would only need the yolk sac ...
    but If they can't keep premature babies (like the REALLY premature ones) alive, then i'm assuming they can't keep giant reptiles alive either :P

    it's a really cool find...but I don't think we'll see any living T-Rex's in our life-time. There are people hard at work trying to clone them though. Same with Wooly Mammoths. April
