hey,

i was just reading an article about some rich people in japan trying to create Mammoths from frozen ones, and taking the sperm and ejecting it into a female elephants, so there is 50% dna of a mammoth, and they carry on with thier children. So it is 75% mammoth dna and so on. The mammoths will be 88% mammoth dna(in our lifetime biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif ). There is a full report on this website!

Yep and the pleistocene park is alreaddy under construction headed by Dr. Sergei Zimov in Yakutian Siberia. They plan on coming over here to Edmonton to get wood bison from Elk Island national park next year for the roundup that happens in the park every 2 years. They already have horses and they hope with a large prey base to have siberian tigers introduced eventually.

their plan is kind of old news, but it's exciting to know they're going through with it. it wouldn't work for dinosaurs because we can't get dino sperm.

not true, there is a theory that some types of dinosaurs lived in the antartic when its started to freeze over, so, there is a SMALL chance that some dinos could have been preserved....in theory, i may be completely wrong. ill look it up

well of course it's possible that there were some arctic dinos, but we don't know that for certain. from what we KNOW, it's not possible to retrieve...dino sperm...

think about this: what are the chances that we find a frozen dino?

and this: how long can something stay preserved in ice?

Nearly forever. The thing to remember DD is that there was no permanent ice in the globe at that time, or for millions of years after so you're not going to find a frozen dinosaurs anywhere in the ice.

hmm..well, IF we somehow recieve that .0001 percent chance that we find some, there is nothing big enough that is compatible with the large dinos.
