That's right! The most fearsome hunter of the Cretaceous period was nothing but a chicken. I guess that answers what it tasted like.
"Scientists had long assumed that the material in fossil bones would not be preserved after millions of years of burial," said Enriqueta Barrera, program director in NSF's Division of Earth Sciences. "This discovery has implications for the study of similarly well-preserved fossil material."

Oh my, so they are calling it protein remains. Give me a break, lol. Those so called protein remains are actually DNA segments.
How in the world did they survive a couple million years without breaking down? Or is it really that the blood vessels & bone marrow the DNA was taken from inside the partially fossilized T-Rex bone is really only a coulple thousand years old?
PhD's in biology will tell you that animal matter cannot survive more than 10,000 years witout totally breaking down.
What else do you not know that the liberal media isn't telling you...?
