This is exciting news, just think of all the other species that could be brought back using cloning.  And not just extinct ones but the critically endangered ones as well!

That is soo cool! I can't wait to see what it looks like.

Didn't they manage to extract some bits of dinosaur DNA from a fossil? It would be really interesting if they could do the same sort of thing with a bird or lizard with dino-DNA.

I don't know.  I know they found partial mammoth DNA, but given how fragile DNA is it's surprising that even that held up.

Scientifically, it is amazing and can lead to a whole range of good things.  Used correctly though.  I will say the same thing that I have been for years though.

Here's a picture of one before it was extinct.

Which, IMO, looks a whole lot more like a canine species than a feline species. Or maybe a weird combination of it.

It was neither.  I suspect they called it a 'tiger' because of the stripes, but they were marsupials, not closely related to cats or dogs.  Smiley

Shit. Just call it brindle and be done with it. At least that's species neutral. LOL

I would fully support cloning a T-Rex just to watch a real-life version of a certain scene in Jurassic Park.

It's my understanding that they found protein, but not DNA specifically (yet).

Yes, it was. They took some material from the bone marrow (I think), soaked it in something, and it got soft. I just can't remember how much they were able to extract, if any.
