The Exposition: Hammond: “Well! Mr DNA! Where’d you come from?”
Mr DNA: “From your blood! Just one drop of your blood contains billions of strands of DNA, the building blocks of life. A DNA 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! A hundred million years ago, there were mosquitoes, just like today.
“And, just like today, they fed on the blood of animals. Even dinosaurs! Sometimes, after biting a dinosaur, the mosquito would land on a branch of a tree, and get stuck in the sap.
“After a long time, the tree sap would get hard and become fossilised, just like a dinosaur bone, preserving the mosquito inside!”
