Possibly dino DNA without the mosquito

Something out of the ordinary happened... according to a website, today. This is going to startle you as much as me... THEY FOUND RED BLOOD CELLS FOSSILIZED  THAT BELONG TO A DINOSAUR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It was 75 MILLION years old!!!!!!!!!!!
I know! It's poorly preserved, though. Now, about that first sentence in this blog post, that was just ONE website. There are other websites with the same story. Amazingly, it's not as uncommon as you may think. More research needs to be done for scientists to find out if it's true. If it is true, than we could be on our way to an actual Jurassic Park!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Although, we're going to need to genetically modify them to not eat humans, and then there's the problem of making sure they will not change gender as they grow so they can actually all be female, and then to make sure they will not be able to escape even without electricity...

Chameo-saurus

I haven't posted something for a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time(O.K., not THAT long.) so now, here is my new post. This family studies a country for two weeks in the summer, and we can't do the same country until five years have passed. This week it's Yemen. My mom found a lot of videos about the animals in an island off the coast of Yemen. One of them is called the calyptratus. If you prefer a more easy pronunciation, it's also called the veiled chameleon. One more thing, I wanted to post about the brontosaurus being classified as its own species, but I kept forgetting.

New, cool frog!

A new frog has been discovered in the part of the Andes Mountains in Ecuador. But this frog is not as ordinary as it sounds. This new frog can SHAPE-SHIFT! Although it can't shape-shift into a different animal, it's still very cool. Hear is what I mean by "shape-shift"; it can change
from having prickly skin to having smooth skin in about five minutes. To read

Actiont mammals

I'm about to go to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, so I need to post this fast. In China, two mammal species were discovered. They lived in the Jurassic. One probably lived in trees, and the other was probably a digger. You can find out more if  you click here.*

Mystery feather

We found a feather. Here are the clues we have to it:
1) There's orange wearing off on the backside of the feather.
2) The bird that lost the feather makes a really-high pitched "cheep".
3) The feather smells like dust.

Talkative birds

My parakeets are SO talkative! As I am writing this, my parakeets are doing rapid, silent chirps. A couple minuets ago, I was doing tabata, and there was one point where they were chirping so loud that they chirped over the music. If you don't know what tabata is, it is an exercise song. But anyway, sometimes, they don't make a sound, and just sit on one of their perches looking at me as if there're thinking, " What are you doing here? Don't you have more important things to do than watch us?" They are just so funny.

Giant pandas, dogs and dinner (oh my!)

Above, is an animation of a giant 
 panda that I think is cute. You can also find a short video clip with dogs eating at a dinner table at this site.
