Consider me super shook over this latest scientific discovery.
A tick... grasping a dinosaur feather... was found preserved in a piece of amber.
THIS IS LITERALLY THE BEGINNING OF THE JURASSIC PARK PLOT!
Found grasping the feather of a dinosaur, the bloodsucker's last supper is remarkable because it is rare to find parasites with their hosts in the fossil record https://t.co/hxnq0J6GGM pic.twitter.com/Qn5dsYfn2k— The Windsor Star (@TheWindsorStar) December 13, 2017
The part of me that has seen Jurassic Park is terrified of what might happen while another part of me that still has seen Jurassic Park is unreasonably excited by the prospects of this discovery https://t.co/6gFcWQyMy1— Amy Waldron (@Awolamy) December 12, 2017
Now, there are some who say that even if scientists are able to extract dinosaur blood from the tick, actually using it to clone a dinosaur would be impossible.
I know, I really want to go to a real life Jurassic Park too, but sadly this just isn't the way to do it.— Simon M. Clabby (@SMClabby_MR) December 14, 2017
And even if, by some miracle the DNA did survive and you could clone a dinosaur, you probably wouldn't recognise it anyway.
Anyway, what do you think this discovery means, fam?!

Let's not clone any dinosaurs - we all know how that will end... https://t.co/prDo0tyQ2Y— Brittany Kibbey (@unfixed_shrimp) December 13, 2017
Great. Dinosaurs couldn’t avoid extinction but the super tick has made a billion years... https://t.co/W6BTgx2PJW— Christina Zabrocki (@zabrockicl) December 13, 2017
