Question:
Do you think we will be able to re-create dinosaurs from dinosaur DNA found in old mosquitoes?



Replies:
I didn't think mosquitoes lived longer than a few months, but if you can find one that's 65 million years old, I'll see what I can do. This question and similar ones generated by "Jurassic Park" have been answered many times here. Check the archives.
