What Would Dinosaur Meat Taste Like?

December 29, 2012 in Daily Bulletin, Signature

In any self-respecting dinosaur movie there’s a scene where the fearsome predators try to eat humans. But, let’s be honest, if we ever managed to clone dinosaurs it’d be us eating them. What would they taste like?

  • The taste of meat depends largely on the type of diet the animal had. Humans generally prefer the meat of herbivores since it tastes less ‘gamey’.
  • Thus carnivorous animals such as the Tyrannosaurus Rex likely wouldn’t find a place on our dining tables.
  • Despite their close genetic relationship with birds, dinosaurs are unlikely to taste like chicken. They’re more likely to taste like beef because of the type of activity they engaged in.
