What caught my eye was this tidbit, however:
Despite the inherent difficulties, Dr Agenbroad remains optimistic about the potential for cloning.
“When we got the Jarkov mammoth [found frozen in Taimyr, Siberia, in 1997], the geneticists told me: ‘if you can get us good DNA, we’ll have a baby mammoth for you in 22 months’,” he told BBC News.
Now that would be cool! Imagine a mammoth (cloned) walking in a zoo. Now that’s the ultimate attraction for a zoo keeper. Apparently though, it’s really difficult (no kidding).
