Descendants of extinct mammals like the giant woolly mammoth
might one day walk the Earth again. It isn't exactly Jurassic Park,
but Japanese researchers are looking at the possibility of using
sperm from frozen animals to inseminate living relatives.
So far they've succeeded with mice—some frozen as long as 15
years—and lead researcher Dr. Atsuo Ogura says he would like to
try experiments in larger animals.
"If spermatozoa of extinct mammalian species can be retrieved from
animal bodies that were kept frozen for millions of years in permafrost,
live animals might be restored by injecting them into (eggs) from
females of closely related species,'' the researchers said in a paper
appearing in Tuesday's issue of Proceedings of the National Academy

Would love to see the huge mongering beast lug around our planet.
What happens if it does work though ? Does that mean we can bring back
huge bears and sabers too ? that would be cool to see.
