What would happen if you mixed a T-Rex dinosaur and a komodo dragon, or an extinct woolly mammoth and an elephant? No one knows, but we may soon find out! Russian scientist working out of a Siberian laboratory may answer these questions, making the ‘Jurassic Park’ movie scenario an actual reality.
Is that a good thing? Probably not, but hey… that’s never stopped scientist from testing the boundaries of the unknown or probing the moral fabric of society before, for the sake of science and profit. What could possibly go wrong?
Siberia has always been a treasure trove of remains of extinct animal species, one in particular, the woolly mammoth. Using woolly mammoth remains that had recoverable DNA, scientist at the Mammoth Museum of the Institute of Applied Ecology at the North-Eastern Federal University in Yakutsk will begin the cloning process in an ‘attempt’ to resurrect this 40,000 year old elephant species.
But that’s not all! No, these guys want to make a real life “Pleistocene Park” and have plans to ‘resurrect’ other extinct animal species from that era like the woolly rhinoceros, giant cave lions and bears, bulls and bison. Don’t worry though, scientist say they will keep them safe in a natural park like area/zoo. What could possibly go wrong?
