Extinct animals will be cloned
The scientists will start their work from close studying of mammoth remains. If the scientists find living cells with DNA than they will easily recreate the extinct animals and not only mammoths. “Mammoths’ bodies preserve better in ice like the one we found in Maly Lyakhovsky Island. When we saw the body for the first time we couldn’t believe how good it was preserved when we broke the ice there was red liquid which turned out to be blood”, says Semen Grigoriev the head of Mammoth museum in Yakutsk. By the way the animal’s body was found in summer 2012 but the scientists managed to extract the body from ice only next year.
