There are bigfoot pictures in Pennsylvania by auto camera - Page 64

Consider this: http://www.naturalworlds.org/thylacine/mrp/cloning/cloning_1.htm

While it makes sense to clone a thylacine, cloning the moa would make a lot more sense. A chicken is normally cut up in fourteen parts, but a moa would be huge. Kentucky Fried Moa, now that sounds good.

I think there are far more powerful reasons in favor of bringing back moas than as a food source, especially since they were essentially eaten out of existence by the natives.

Yes, they must be delicious. And the dodo bird must have tasted pretty good also.

The dodo is reported to have been very unpalatable but things like feral pigs and probably rats would eat the eggs............ Man's fault but we weren't eating them.

Are you sure of that? When people get hungry, things taste pretty good.

This is likely why sailors subsisting on hardtack found them to be a delightful respite, but those not similarly restricted in diet back in Europe wrote that "the longer and oftener they were cooked, the less soft and more insipid eating they became."

In any case, considering the effort required to bring an extinct species back to life, thinking of it as a new food source would be like asking someone to write the next great American novel so that you may use the book as a paperweight.

Rufus ever read any of the 411 missing books? Very interesting.
