"Just don't give any ideas to KFC..."

I can picture the advert now: "Get your teeth around the Colonel's "Tea Rex" bargain basket."

Wasn't there a series in 2000 AD about time travellers rounding up dinosaurs and bringing them back to the 21st century for just that?

I remember that! It was called 'Flesh' or something like that.

There was a BBC series out a few years back called Primeval. It had plenty of dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures.

Not BBC.
Sadly, that show ended because of low ratings. I enjoyed it anyway.

In the US, the show aired on BBC America? It was a great show.

It was made for ITV, but they did a distribution deal with BBC America.

So what is the closest living animal to a dinosaur?

On superficial looks alone, I guess a Saltwater Croc, Komodo Dragon or those species of lizard that resort to a bipedal gait when in a hurry spring to mind.

In reality though, would it be a chicken, goose or ostrich?
