The oldest intact mammoth on record was found by a group of French scientists in Siberia, Russia, in Oct. 1999. The animal is estimated to be 23,000 years old, and has tusks weighing 143 lbs. each. The objective of the expedition, which was sponsored by the Discovery Channel, was to find DNA from this extinct species to perform cloning experiments.
We have a baby mammoth exhibit here. I t's at our mall waiting for the center to be built that will house it. It is pretty incredible to look at. And it is the size of my friend's Husky.
I've heard of them finding that mammoth, But I havn't heard anything recently about the DNA yet, have they already made clones? Only this is we don't know how tame they are, considering they didn't have much human interaction. We don't know what they were like.
Yeah, I remember seeing that discover channel show... Where is that particular mammoth now?
