Life Imitates Jurassic Park...

Man screws with Nature again, just because he can:

Descendents of the woolly mammoth could once more walk the earth, new research suggests.

Scientists have found that frozen sperm taken from dead animals can be used to produce offspring.

If they could also get sperm from animals that have spent millions of years encased in ice, this suggests it might even be possible to create a modern-day version of once-extinct species.

In the case of the woolly mammoth - several of which have been found preserved in ice - this would mean impregnating its closest living relative, a female Indian elephant, to produce new offspring.
Mammoth steaks, baby. I can hardly wait.
