Yes we are closer to bringing back extinct species, but I am afraid we just don't have the habitat to sustain a mammoth herd, that and the fact I don't believe are climate is right for them to survive. Too warm. Just my opinions.

After the mammoth what next? real life Jurassic park? Probably the tasmanian devil, and a number of other species that we have mroe physical remains than bones. I can think of the ground sloth and a type of large carnivorous bird off hand, sure there are others. Dinosaurs would be very difficult. Very old, with only fragmentary DNA available.
