The Turkey Will Have Its Revenge...

On turkey day let us not lose sight of the fact that we are eating a domesticated derived avian theropod- a dinosaur. The turkey is also one of two domesticated new world animals that I can think of- the other being a guinea pig- so it is distinctly a dish of the Americas.


In the spirit of all things turkeyish you should not miss this awesome write up, Tracking the Wild Turkeys on the Georgia Coast, from one of my fave bogs Life Traces of the Georgia Coast written by paleontologist/ichnologist Anthony Martin. After reading it you will not think of turkeys the same way,,,
