Wasn't there a show about this on the discovery channel a few years ago? I'm pretty sure there was. From what I remember they've already created embryos with sharp teeth and elongated tails. Super neato stuff. I'd totally eat at KFD.

Wonder what will be hatched if they randomly manipulate the embryo! Maybe a tentacled dinosaur with the head of a human who can fly, breathe fire and give milk at the same time.
