Is the World Ready for a "Dino-chicken?"

Hosted by

We all know the story behind Jurassic World, where genetically engineered dinosaurs run wild. One descendent of dinosaurs is the chicken — and last month, researchers announced that they had modified part a chicken to look like part of a dinosaur. That was welcome news to Jack Horner. A paleontologist at Montana State University, he's been a consultant to the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World movies. He's looking forward to a complete "dino-chicken."
