:look:

This is a re-post of a thread I lost and I feel this is one (of many) is important for forums here.

In case you missed the thread the first time around, Jack Horner explains how many dinosaurs have been given new names for what was many times the same species.

Dinosaurs, just like birds, "shape-shifted" through-out their growth cycles. Scientists and museums who only wanted new dinosaur species to display often times renamed dinosaurs since scientists who make new discoveries are allowed to name the new fossil.

But one problem existed in museums...WHERE ARE THE BABY DINOSAURS?

Jack Horner: Building a dinosaur from a chicken

http://www.ted.com 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".

Yep, nice re-post Kinni and an important one. :flop:

I enjoyed the it first time round and was quite amazed that something so simple was overlooked for so long!!

So, two or three dinosaurs could, in fact, be the same creature, just at different periods of development.

Unbelievable that so-called scientists could miss that.

But then look at 'Global warming' - oops, sorry, its now 'Climate Change' - that was cracker too! :mrgreen:
