Mammoths to Walk the Earth Again

 

The tissue from a Russian mammoth carcass is to be used by a team from Japan to clone a mammoth. According to the leader of the team, Akira Iritani "Preparations to realize this goal have been made".

The nuclei of mammoth cells will be used to replace the nuclei of an elephants egg. The embryo will be planted in a elephant´s uterus in hopes that it will developed to a full term mammoth.
The mammoth walked the earth during the last "Ice Age".

The problem with cloning was successfully using nuclei from frozen cells. The team will use technique developed by Teruhiko Wakayama of the Riken Centre for Developmental Biology. Wakayama´s method cloned a mouse from tissue frozen for 16 years.

  Mmm  
 
You know, Manny, if it wasnt for humans brutally murdering wooly mammoths, cooking juicy burgers from them, and wearing their fur as coats, you and I probably wouldnt be here today :D.

  Yeah  
 
maybe we can work on getting mammoth flavored seasoning packets for noodles then...

A second chance is hard to come by.

  Great.  
 
They´ll kill of whales, so now they can resurrect the species too... I guess.

Mammoth Sushi anyone?

  If we are going to bring back extinct animals then  
 
we only bring back the ones we made extinct. The creatures that went extinct by themselves before our time or even naturally during human occupation of Earth should be left alone. If we don´t we would be f´ing about with nature again like we did when we made animals to go extinct in the first place.

If we bring back the ones we wiped out we would be undoing the damage we have done. Bringing back things like Dinosaurs and prehistoric things is pretty much doing more damage.

  I disagree  
 
These creatures can´t survive in the wild, and even if we resurrected some recently deceased species, they would have no genetic diversity, even if we ever figure out how to make them fertile.

  My two cents
