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.

hehe- im sure it would take some time to make a t-rex or a brontosuar;:- but, with all the dna research ect... i wonder if it would be possible to cross a chicken egg with a crocodile egg, make little dinosaurs "chickodiles" or "roostersaures rex" lol-jk

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.
