    Hey, just in time for scary worldwide climate change, comes the wooly mammoth. Sounds familiar, right? A team of Japanese, Russian, and American scientists based out of Japan's Kyoto University is working to clone a big hairy beast from the Earth's last ice age.

    The scientists hope to clone a baby mammoth within the next six years by extracting DNA from the body of a preserved mammoth. The DNA will then be injected into the cells of an African elephant.

    Scientist Akira Iritani, the head of the team is working with techniques used to clone a mouse from frozen cells. Once cloned, the scientists plan to study the mammoth to learn more about its species. Says Iritani,

    If a cloned embryo can be created, we need to discuss, before transplanting it into the womb, how to breed [the mammoth] and whether to display it to the public. After the mammoth is born, we'll examine its ecology and genes to study why the species became extinct and other factors.

    No word on plans for an amusement park built around the cloned extinct animals.

    i dont think bringing an extinct species back into our world is a good idea, i mean climate for one is different than it was in the Ice Age. I still fail to see the point of this, its an expensive project for sure, and other than further understanding an extinct creature....?

    They have to reintroduce mammoths to the world to feed the ever-growing primitivist population. Never mind that technology is being used, though I'm sure some of the primmies might gripe about it on their blogs.

    well they've been trying to genetically reengineer a chicken backwards into a t-rex for a while and I heard they're getting pretty close.

    they should make other megafauna....like giant sloths and shit. it'd be perfect timing for the upcoming ice age.

    I want us to go a step further and start creating our own unique lifeforms. I really want scientists to make some sort of horrible gigantic creature. I'm not kidding either. Every time I look at a body of water I fantasize about there being giant sea monsters down there. I'll settle for a discovery of a real giant monster though (no giant squid though).

    now, if they did successfully clone the mammoth, would the next step be to make it glow in the dark?

    3. MAMMOTHS ARE AWESOME.

    don't worry, I've just seen a 'DIY guide to growing yr own t-rex with organic, permaculture, gender-queer herbs' up on zinelibrary.info.

    Don't believe me? Well, hey, it doesn't make less sense than primmos claiming animal stomach linings can make an effective condom... :/

    but anywayz, who cares? AIDS is a myth!

    Luminous Mammoth Clone, sounds like a great band name hahha.
    Not that I have any valid scientific oppinion, but it just seems to me like ant attempt of 'man triumphs over nature... again'. I'm sure alot of lab animals have given their lives for this 'cause' and all there will be at the end is a freak show and a very expensive hunters trophy. I'm having a pop science because without it we'd all be fucked, but fuck me I thought scientists were suppose to be smart, they only doing it for an award, but it would be a pointless award, like a 10m swimming badge, surely any decent scientist would want to be remembered for more then making a hairy elephant...

    The end of the world is going to be destruction by cloned dinosaurs!!!!!!
    Haven't you guys seen the 2nd Jurassic Park where one T-rex terrorizes San Diego? Imaging that but with like 1000000000000 T-rexs after the reproduce!!!!

    Humans go exinct then dinosaurs rule the earth again!
