Don’t Eat T. Rex

Bad choice.

If you find yourself in a theme park on a deserted island populated with dinosaurs cloned from prehistoric DNA, there's something you need to know: Eating T. rex will make you sick. A professor of paleontology at Montana State University has taken the time to consider which dinosaurs would taste the best. Jaw abnormalities show that T. rexes ate fetid meat and were filled with parasites, so you'd be doomed to die inside a Porta Potty. Instead, hunt ornithomimosaurs (ostrichlike dinosaurs), velociraptors (wild ambush predators), and sauropods (the largest animals to ever walk the earth). Best of luck, and remember — these monsters breed. [Popular Science via HuffPo]
