Turkeys will be big as humans in just 150 years. In 6,000, they will dwarf the Earth itself http://t.co/AT0g0VStbd pic.twitter.com/iQ9CT0MNQo"Humans may soon have to look to their laurels as the planet’s dominant species. Turkeys, heretofore harmless, have been exploding in size, swelling from an average 13.2lb (6kg) in 1929 to over 30lb today. On the fairly scientific assumption that present trends will persist, The Economist estimates that turkeys will be big as humans in just 150 years. Before 6,000 years are out, turkeys will dwarf the Earth itself." Link.
