29. You Eat Dinosaur


Unless you are a vegetarian, you regularly eat dinosaurs–well kind of. Genetic patterns have shown that chickens are close relatives of the ancient dinosaurs we all love to study. In fact, out of all the bird species alive today, chickens and turkeys are the closest relatives to dinosaurs, as they have gone through the least amount of evolutionary changes. It’s pretty wild to think that animals that we have cultivated for livestock have actually been around for millions and millions of years.
