O famoso paleontólogo Jack Horner pasou a súa carreira tentando reconstruir un dinosauro. Ten atopado fósiles con vasos sanguíneos extraordinariamente ben conservados, e tecidos moles, mais nunca ADN intacto. Por iso, nun novo enfoque, está tomando descendentes vivos dos dinosauros (os polos) e modificándoos xenéticamente para reactivar trazos ancestrais -incluíndo dentes,colas, e mesmo mans- para facer un "Polosaurus".
