Now this is befuddling,I could have sworn someone on another board said that the DNA couldnt be gotten by the enamel on the tooth.
Now this is something,this article says the dental pulp (does that mean gum tissue?)
The pulp would come from the inside of the tooth I believe.
I wasn't sure where to post this....we don't have a science or an off topic forum anymore.
I thought maybe it could be debated whether this new species could be somehow related to an alien intervention!!!......long shot...I know!!!
