Scientist regrow chicken wing

loc0loc0 PExer
Chop off a salamander's leg and a brand new one will sprout in no time. But most animals have lost the ability to replace missing limbs. Now, a research team at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies has been able to regenerate a wing in a chick embryo -- a species not known to be able to regrow limbs -- suggesting that the potential for such regeneration exists innately in all vertebrates, including humans.

Our ancestors long ago lost the ability for full recovery (regenerate limbs, etc) in exchange for quick recovery (scabbing, scarring).

What does new discovery this mean?

1) The possibility of humans regrowing severed limbs

2) The bottomless fried chicken bucket from KFC

At the moment, I would prefer #2 :lol:
