Wild Turkeys are a wildlife conservation success story. Yep, the staple of many Thanksgiving feasts can map its heritage right back to one of the most renowned dinosaur of the all: the Tyrannosaurus Rex. As a bird flies, the wishbone imitates a springtime, keeping after that launching energy. This bone can be mapped way back to 150 million years ago to some groups of dinosaurs, including T. rex and Velociraptors. Wild Turkeys hold the difference of being among only 2 New World species to be domesticated. The bird that ends up on many a family's Thanksgiving Day table bares little outward resemblance to its wild relative. Those Purdues and butterballs are more closely pertaining to a subspecies of Wild Turkey domesticated by Central American natives nearly 2000 years earlier. Centuries later on, when European travelers cruised across the ocean blue they brought with them the descendants of those world taking a trip turkeys.
