Triceratops was a giant horned turkey



This kinda interesting story was linked to a webpage
Tom Holtz recently referred to on this list: 

http://www.foxnews.com/science/041600/times_dinosaur.sml

It's about a comparison of Triceratops DNA to that of
living animals.  Apparently it's a dead match for a
turkey.

How accurate is this kind of DNA analysis of long-dead animals?
