Following Mark Hamill on Twitter is like flipping through the channels on TV. From politics to jokes Hamill’s Twitter feed definitely keeps his over 4 million followers entertained. This morning Hamill retweeted a post by the Museum Archive that just might give him flashbacks to the Rancor pit. It seems that a group of archaeologists found a once-in-a-lifetime find, a 3,300-year-old claw from an extinct bird called a “Moa”. What is really fascinating about this find is that it still has flesh and muscles attached to it. While this find is pretty interesting on its own it was Mark Hamill’s response to it that also gave us a laugh as well.

Excuse me, but I recognize a Rancor’s hand when I see one,” Hamill responded to this tweet. So, not only did we get a little laugh but because of Mark Hamill’s response to this tweet, over 90 thousand people got a little science and history to start their morning off as well. Let’s just hope they don’t try to clone it, we don’t need flying Rancors to worry about.
