    The juvenile mammoth, which was found in a frozen cliff in Siberia, gives an important insight into the unknown secrets of the animal including hair and eye colour.

    An examination of its body, described by scientists as having “huge significance”, is even said to show human beings “stole” their food from hunting lions, with wounds consistent with attack from both predators.

    In found to be true, it will be the first evidence of interaction between mammoths and ancient humans ever found in the area.

    The well-preserved mammal, which has been named Yuka, is thought to have been between three and four years old when it died and still has its foot pads and ginger hair in tact.

    It may have lain unnoticed in its icy tomb for more than 10,000 years, experts said, with its injuries being perfectly frozen in time.

    It's amazing find. Just don't dare to clone it!
  3. The Helper Administrator

    I think they definitely should clone it. That would be cool!
  4. FireCat Oh Shi.. Don't wake the tiger!

    Nah. Think of the diseases and the dangers to existing animals. "Such cruelty" and being locked up in a zoo hmm
  5. The Helper Administrator

    They should at least clone a herd then. Put them on some Preserve, and see what happens. The only thing is that they could not learn from there parents as they would not have any. It would all be instinct and whatever interaction Humans had in it.
  6. FireCat Oh Shi.. Don't wake the tiger!

    Hahahaha Why not Just let them go their own way?
  7. Wiseman_2 Missy wants blood!

    Hmm. I always wondered what mammoth tasted like.
  8. Danny Cross Bunny

    I completely agree. What better way to learn about it than to have one around. Scientists can only guess things off things they find around one, but a real live one would give factual answers.

    They would get there eventually. I would like to ride one.
  10. FireCat Oh Shi.. Don't wake the tiger!

    Cloning something, would be extremely dangerous to the birth mother and the clone. you want that?

  11. camelCase The Case of the Mysterious Camel.

    Do you have a valid source to back both those claims?
    No, a funny picture is not a valid source.
  12. Varine And as the moon rises, we shall prepare for war

    So? Do you SEE a mother in the picture anyway?
  13. FireCat Oh Shi.. Don't wake the tiger!

    ^ :rolleyes:
    .

    Oh shit, I Just found something else
    Do you want Moar?!?

    Blah, blah, blah and blah.
    First quote merely says it's difficult.
    Second quote says it's expensive and current technology is inefficient.
    Third quote says it's inefficient, too, and that complications may occur in the clone; big whoop, beings born by natural means also suffer complications.
    Fourth quote merely talks about something irrelevant.

    Where is your data to support the following claims?
    + Cloning something, would be extremely dangerous to the birth mother and the clone. you want that?
    + And Btw abnormalities in cloned animal has been very high.

    Also, to answer that question "you want that?", yes, I do.
    Risk is no reason hold back science if progress is possible.

    And unless you can come up with a reason to not try and clone anything, this argument will become circular.
    "We shouldn't dabble in cloning because we don't know enough and it's risky!"
    "We don't know enough and it's risky because we don't dabble in cloning!"
  15. FireCat Oh Shi.. Don't wake the tiger!

    There's already an answer, so you haven't figured this out yet?
  16. Varine And as the moon rises, we shall prepare for war

    So what's the answer? If you say 42 I'm going to be pissed.
  17. FireCat Oh Shi.. Don't wake the tiger!

    Let's see here, ah yes 7 x 6 = 42
    Oh crap you got it right, you deserve a cookie! Varine
