Scientists in California are trying to preserve soft Tyrannysaurus Rex tissue found after a bone was broken apart a few months ago to fit it into a helicopter for removal from the dig site.
I have trouble seeing something as reptilian (& old) making a tasty piece of barbecue & the scientists have no overt goals of reproducing the sample, but it would be kind of eerie to have RexBurger or Grilled Rex.
Given that this is soft tissue, there might be some serious squabbling about the age, too. How does one preserve meat — essentially intact — for 70 million years? Or even for the thousand or so “reasonable minimum” that it must surely have been there for?
One half-heartedly wonders what else might be possible. Wing of pteranodon? Mosasaur jaw? Whole roast diplodocus carnegii?
