I will be surprised if the first cloned woolly mammoth does not happen sooner than ten years in the future; they are also working on the cloning of extinct ancient horses and cave lions.. The lions will certainly need something to eat, No?


Back in 2012 a research institute in the Sakha Republic signed an agreement with South Korea's Sooam Biotech Research Foundation outlining their intention to produce a living mammoth. Meanwhile, researchers in Harvard have also been working on creating a woolly mammoth and elephant hybrid. If the cloning attempts are successful, theses creatures would also be taken to Pleistocene Park.

Ice Age Park? Russian, S.Korean scientists to clone woolly mammoth

The majority of woolly mammoths were wiped out 10,000 years ago; however a small population endured in Northern Siberia for some 6,000 more years after the mammoths of the mainland had died off.

Think we also have some mitochondrial DNA of the Denisova hominid from Siberia.

So theoretically there could be more than just cloned woolly mammoths kicking about.


Then again the religious brigade will/would have a field day with the reintroduction of just the mammoths never mind actual ancient hominids.

Interesting and scientifically fascination as it is.

Evolution will take over, whether humans like it or not.

Who is really stupid enough to do this?

Didn't any of these idiots see Jurassic Park?

So they just woke up one morning and thought "You know what? The world needs more furry elephants, because furry elephants are really cool! ESPECIALLY the REALLY BIG ONES! We have the technology, and we are WAAAAY smarter than nature, because we, like, went to college! Some of us even went twice, and have GRADUATE Degrees. We're like SO MUCH smarter than, like, "regular" people, and we just think it would be, like, REALLY cool!"

Mammoths died out for a reason. I don't know what that reason was, and to be completely honest, I couldn't care less, but nature flipped them the bird, and now there are none.

Go ahead, idjits, just keep on tickling the tail of that Dragon.

What does religion have to do with it?

Surely you've heard the phrase, "the father, the son and the woolly spirit"?

It's pretty clear cut.

We can get Bison burgers which are lean and great tasting.. I gotta wonder what a woolly mammoth burger would taste like with out the hair..

According to archeological history primitive peoples certainly enjoyed a woolly mammoth on the barbie.

Probably tastes great, have Hillary whip out some hot sauce from her purse and throw a few spicy pickles on it and you have one hell of a sandwich.

Humans made them extinct so it is only fair that we bring them back.

Dinosaurs are a different story, they would f stuff up.

Humans, or natural selection. It could be argued. Dominant species come and go. Who's to say it was humanities choice or that we weren't a function of natural forces.

I think people, humanity, has way too much of an opinion of itself when it comes to cosmic and natural forces.

See? That's how it starts.

You know this for a fact? There are idjits all over the world that actually believe in AGW. Most of THEM went to "university" too.

Every "prediction" Al gore made since he came off the tit has been wrong.

Oh, and by the way, in the event that humans DID wipe them out, do you think that's NOT natural selection?

Cuz I hate to pop your bubble, but it is.

One species wipes out another.

Natural order.

I have always wanted to see a saber tooth tiger.

Can you imagine an 1100 pound tiger with those teeth.

As cool as this sounds I can see many problems arising.

But ya what F it. The cool factor is large with this one.

Humanity.

"Didn't any of these idiots see Jurassic Park?"

You mean the Holywood movie? Yes, but whats your point?

"What does religion have to do with it?"

That depends on a few factors really and religions.

Screw reptiles. Screw overgrown furry elephants.

Cats are just not to be trusted. Not in ANY situation.

THAT'S what nightmares are made of.

Daaayyyyuuum. Instant poopy time.
