Shhh!
What? What?
Oh, well, Mr. D.N.A.! Where did you come from?
From your blood.
Just one drop of your blood contains...
billions of strands of D.N.A., the building blocks of life.
A D.N.A. strand like me is a blueprint for building a living thing.
And sometimes, animals that went extinct millions of years ago,
like dinosaurs, left their blueprints behind for us to find.
We just had to know where to look.
100 million years ago, there were mosquitoes, just like today.
And just like today, they fed on the blood of animals, even dinosaurs.
Sometimes, after bitin'a dinosaur,
the mosquito would land on the branch of a tree...
and get stuck in the sap.
After a long time, the tree sap would get hard...
and become fossilized, just like a dinosaur bone,
preserving the mosquito inside.
This fossilized tree sap, which we call amber,
waited for millions of years with the mosquito inside.
Until Jurassic Park scientists came along.
Using sophisticated techniques,
they extract the preserved blood from the mosquito,
and bingo.: dino D.N.A.
