    Jurassic Park?
    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7285683

    A 70-million-year-old Tyrannosaurus rex fossil dug out of a hunk of sandstone has yielded soft tissue, including blood vessels and perhaps even whole cells, U.S. researchers reported on Thursday.

    Paleontologists forced to break the creature's massive thighbone to get it on a helicopter found not a solid piece of fossilized bone, but instead something looking a bit less like a rock.

    When they got it into a lab and chemically removed the hard minerals, they found what looked like blood vessels, bone cells and perhaps even blood cells.

    It'd be cool if they could clone about 100 of them and just release them into the middle east :p

    they would slit their own throats! lol

    Ya know what... I think in the name of science, scientists are almost "OBLIGATED" to clone one of these things.

    You can't tell me that we couldn't build an enclosure secure enough to contain it.
