I know, I know, I love dinosaurs, but I have been curious of what the ancient chicken ancestors tasted like. are there any recipes I could try, and what ingredients would I need?

I'm going to assume that this is a humourous way of ask "how edible would a dinosaur's flesh be?", that being the case the answer is something on the order of: we have no concrete idea but for the smaller ones that you could spit roast Emu or Ostrich meat might be a good starting point, or they might all have produced Allopumiliotoxins like Poison Dart Frogs and you'd drop dead if you got too close to the cook fire.

  • $\begingroup$ that is a pretty good answer, and yes, that is kind of what i'm asking. I just had a thought. you could probably get the tail of some small bipedal (hyspliseodon is a good example) scrape the meet off, grill it, chop it up, and put it in a salad. $\endgroup$ – Sabers the fox May 23 '18 at 17:21
