"Palaeontologists have extracted soft, flexible structures that appear to be blood vessels from the bone of a Tyrannosaurus rex that died 68 million
years ago. They also have found small red microstructures that resemble red blood cells.
The discovery suggests biological information can be recovered from a wider range of fossil material than realised, which would greatly help the
tracing of evolutionary relationships."
How could any "soft" tissue survive for 68 million years? Perhaps this Rex is a bit younger? Perhaps even 5000 years old? Perhaps there is a flaw
in the dating metholology?
