Default A Mammoth Undertaking

"Japanese researchers will launch a project this year to resurrect the long-extinct mammoth by using cloning technology to bring the ancient pachyderm back to life in around five years time. The researchers will try to revive the species by obtaining tissue this summer from the carcass of a mammoth preserved in a Russian research laboratory, the Yomiuri Shimbun reported."

I'm with you, Havalotta. I read about this and immediately thought of Jurassic Park. We need to leave well enough alone...
