T-Rex Clones?

Well, probably not.

But way cool anyway:

The big news this week [is] that a Tyrannosaurus Rex discovered in Montana has reportedly yielded soft tissue, including blood vessels and possibly even cells ...

The discovery could lead to new information about dinosaur physiology and the relationship between dinosaurs and other animals; similarities have already been pointed out between the dinosaur's blood vessels and those of an ostrich. But scientists were quick to play down the Jurassic Park possibility - that of finding some intact genetic material and using it for cloning.
