We'll Be Grilling Them in No Time! Potentially Cloneable Wooly Mammoth Found in Siberia
I can almost taste them already! The remains of a well-preserved wooly mammoth have been discovered in the northeastern province of Yakutia, Siberia. Found 328 feet underground, it may potentially contain enough ingredients to someday clone one of those fuzzy fossils. So far scientists have been able to extract mammoth hair, soft tissues and bone marrow, and have also managed to decipher much of the genetic code from that alone. The scientists are now searching for the living tissues needed that serve as the icing to this genetic ice cream cake, and have high hopes in doing so.
It's pretty reminiscent of Jurassic Park minus the bloodthirsty murdersaurs and the Jeff Goldblum's conspiracy theories. When you think about it, it's just not as fun if you're not horrified and running from one of the two.
