Building a dinosaur from a chicken - Jack Horner

Renowned paleontologist Jack Horner has spent his career trying to reconstruct a dinosaur. He's found fossils with extraordinarily well-preserved blood vessels and soft tissues, but never intact DNA. So, in a new approach, he's taking living descendants of the dinosaur (chickens) and genetically engineering them to reactivate ancestral traits — including teeth, tails, and even hands — to make a "Chickenosaurus."

Bill Nye The Science Guy - S01E03 Dinosaurs

We can dish the real dirt about dinosaurs, thanks to fossils -- traces of theses astonishing animals. Dinosaurs did not print newspapers. They did not take family snapshots or videos 65 million years ago. The only proof scientists have of dinosaurs is their fossils, especially bones. Great Video.

 

Don't forget to make the dinosaur bone fossil.

Cut a bone out of sponge.

Mix 100ml of salt to 250ml of water

Put sand into bowl
