Jurassic Park Influence
 
:::With regards to the location of the Trivia, I am fine with it being on either page, but think it has a place here as well since it still concerns Aerodactyl's origins. The Old Amber page currently makes note that using blood from mosquitos preserved in amber to clone ancient species is a scientific theory, but this is simply false - the theory exists in the first place because Jurassic Park popularized it, and in the real world is highly unlikely to happen, putting aside if it's even feasible to clone a dinosaur if we ''did'' find a mosquito that just happened to be fossilized in amber after drinking its fill of dinosaur blood.

Cloning extinct animals is a scientific theory, and was before Jurassic Park (or even the book its based on) came out. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloning#Cloning_extinct_and_endangered_species The only real connection is specifically the mosquito element. However, I believe some sources, such as the manga, imply that the contents of the amber is not a mosquito, but a piece of Aerodactyl itself. If I remember correctly, the regeneration process in the Pokemon Adventures manga show it actually growing out of the amber. This piece of trivia just isn't something I think is needed on this page . . . as it does have other, older basis.
