Hosted by Michael Aranda and posted on the SciShow YouTube channel, an interesting video on the possible taste of dinosaur meat has people thinking (and learning). With the caption, “Have you ever wondered what dinosaur meat might have tasted like? Chances are you’ve eaten dinosaur more recently than you might expect,” it’s garnering a lot of views. With Texas being a hotbed of dinosaur fossils, you can imagine what type of Texas-sized feast one could have had back in the day (if, of course, you weren’t the feast first!)
With a host of recognized sources for reference (Britannica.com, Exploratorium.edu, and Audubon.org to name a few), the video ‘What Did Dinosaurs Taste Like’ goes on to explain how we may already know what dinosaur meat would taste like, considering its closest related species today are birds. It’s been proven that modern birds are direct descendants of dinosaurs, ergo, dinosaur meat might taste like chicken!
