Found : A perfect baby mammoth

There are conflicting opinions among scientists whether this could be cloned.

Some scientists have speculated about an attempt to clone a pure mammoth by fusing the nucleus of a mammoth cell with a modern elephant egg cell stripped of its own DNA.

Dr Ian Barnes of Royal Holloway, University of London, believes that, in the light of the new find, it will be possible to clone a mammoth "in my lifetime". But Dr Adrian Lister of the Natural History Museum, who was also at the Yakutsk meeting, said that the DNA would be too "shot to pieces" for this to be done easily


These creatures would be as majestic as the elephants, if they are cloned. But no idea about the habitat of the wooly mammoth.
