Cretaceous Park

In Jurassic Park dinosaurs were cloned from blood cells inside a mosquito that was frozen in a chunk of amber. In real life, all the scientists had to do in order to isolate Cretaceous period Tyrannosaurus soft tissue and perhaps blood was to break a T. Rex thighbone in half.
Scientists who had to break a dinosaur bone to remove it from its sandstone location say they have recovered 70-million-year-old soft tissue from inside the bone.

The find included what appear to be blood vessels, and possibly even cells, from a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
Cretacearrific! Cretaceatastic!!!
