On Tuesday, the scholarly journal Evolution nonchalantly published an article detailing a successful attempt by American researchers to manipulate chicken embryos so as to restore dinosaur-like snouts, a predecessor to the modern beak. The researchers were able to identify two proteins that seem to have evolved to fuse snout bones together. Blocking the proteins essentially amounts to rewitnding the evolutionary clock by tens of millions of years.

Read the rest of the article here: Vice: Scientists Have Devised a Dino-Chicken. Now What?

TL:DR Scientists made some Dino-Chickens.

I heard somewhere ethical laws won't let scientists hatch them. Maybe we can make them little tails.

SVANYA - Saints alive! That is terrifying - and extremely compelling! If they are capable of such a feat of genetic manipulation, I can only guess at what scientists will be able to accomplish in the next decade! Thank you so much for sharing this information! :)
