Chicken Wearing Prosthetic Tail Walks Like A Dinosaur

February 7, 2014


This is an animated gif of a chicken wearing a prosthetic tail to counterbalance its weight and make it walk like a dinosaur. It was part of the research conducted by Bruno Grossi of the Universidad de Chile for a recently published paper, appropriately titled, "Walking Like Dinosaurs: Chickens with Artificial Tails Provide Clues about Non-Avian Theropod Locomotion." Sounds like a fascinating read. One time I tried to dinosaur walk to the refrigerator and back clenching a broomstick between my butt cheeks. "Did you make it?" After a couple weeks of practice I did! I wish you could have seen it. "Me too." Awwww, you mean it? "I'd rather be buried alive." Than watch me dinosaur to the fridge and back?! You're f***ed up.

Thanks to Mark C. and Travis F., who strut their asses all day long and look good doing it.
