Scientists say they have managed to find mammoth blood during the excavation of a grown female animal on the Lyakhovsky Islands, the southernmost group of the New Siberian Islands in the Arctic seas of northeastern Russia.

The dark blood was found in ice cavities below the belly of the animal. When researchers broke the cavities with a poll pick, the blood came flowing out. The fact surprised them because the temperature was 10C below zero.

Three adult mammoth carcasses, including the latest discovery of the Yakut scientists, have been found in the history of paleontology. However, despite such a good state of preservation, the scientists have not yet found enough living cells for cloning the species. Grigoriev noted that the repair of DNA is a very complex process that can take years.
The latest discovery and its research heralds the possibility of bringing the animal back to life in the future, though there is a lot of controversy around the issue of cloning.

Tip for would-be paleontologists..............

Always include a Tax Inspector in your team - whatever you find - he'll get blood out of it!

  I have heard that the Russians did eat the meat from wooly mammoths that they had excavated in the past.

Yes I've heard ... this is one up and better don't you think ... ? If they do clone ... sooner or later they'll end up on the grill somewhere

Talk about freezer-burnt - wow

Exploring your own consciousness is the fundamental right of every individual

Locking people in a cage because they choose to exercise that right should be considered a crime against humanity

You need not worry about this one. It's when they(scientists)find viable raptor blood, then we might have a problem.

Mammoths are only being cloned because 1. It's a scientific goal to achieve and 2. They are going to be able to survive tough winter conditions in places like Serbia and so on.

They are also multi-purpose, with meat for food, wool for clothes, skin for leather, tusks for various things. Plus, the creature is large and therefore could sustain a large population. The trick will be domesticating and finding food for it to eat.

This is an important step in both science and human development. Mammoths could allow previously inhospitable places easier to survive in. No need to worry about them being eaten by something as I doubt much could take one down, lots of uses and hardy.

All this does in terms of Jurassic Park is open up the possibility that there is frozen blood of a dinosaur somewhere that could be used. However, would there be much use for them? Who knows.

As for viable "raptor" blood, you need to specify which raptor. Bambiraptors are only 1.3 metres in size... Velociraptors are also small. Utah Raptors are the ones to worry about the most though. There are lots of other dinosaurs though, but chances of finding even one with blood.....

Once an animal has gone extinct it needs to stay gone.
bringing species back could have tragic consequences for the current food chain and nature in general.

I disagree that once an animal has gone extinct it needs to stay gone. Nature screws stuff up all the time and there have been many, many disasters and mass extinctions caused by nature. It will happen again. We are in a unique position with the ability to manipulate nature and we would be wise to learn as much as we can, and learn quickly, the consequences of not learning for the sake of "not upsetting the balance of nature" when the balance of nature is always being upset by other natural disasters and phenomena would be worse than then consequences of tinkering and learning in my opinion.

Not tinkering with nature and not learning valuable information= balanced nature for now, eventual destruction later on with natural disasters/asteroid wiping out the earth.

Tinkering with nature and potentially learning valuable information= possibly upsetting the balance of nature now, with the potential for valuable knowledge that could help us one day leave this earth and travel the stars, help us one day cure diseases, help us one day to better predict and understand the consequences of natural disasters.


We will go extinct one day if we don't keep pushing the boundaries, that is for certain. If we keep pushing the boundaries we might discover some truly marvelous things that will allow us to do things that we can only imagine right now. WE MUST KEEP PUSHING


Nature gave us our brains and our curiosity, we would be wise to use them.
