Hello. I have a little question for you: If you guys are ever able to obtain enough DNA to make a Giganotosaurus, how well would you think a name like Hercules would fit?
Hello anon! A few things I’m going to say here. First off, Hercules would be a wonderful name for a Giganotosaurus! Thank you for the suggestion! But, sadly and secondly, We aren’t planning on recreating any here at Huxley anytime soon. Simply put, our Rex’s enjoy their spotlight and title of largest land-carnivores and we wouldn’t take the attention away from them (and of course, building an entire new segment for a Giganotosaurus family would be hell for management). Thirdly, I would like to point out that besides point #2, there isn’t anything stopping us. You see, you asked if we were ever able to obtain Giganotosaurus DNA. That’s not how it works here at Huxley. I’m sure we’ve mentioned this before, but just in case we haven’t, at Huxley we don’t actually have authentic, real Prehistoric DNA. that’s… impossible, for most species (besides Dodo’s, etc.) DNA before the Pleistocene is too degraded to even consider using for research, let alone cloning. What we do is take modern DNA, and through our INCREDIBLY talented Geneticists, form it into the most scientifically accurate shape we can (from our current Palaeontological Knowledge). If we wanted a Giganotosaurus that badly, we sure could add one to our animal friends. Anyways, that got a little off-topic… Thanks for asking! I hope you continue to find our establishment interesting.
