This is probably the coolest story I’ve read in a long time. The 10,000-year-old remains of a female mammoth have recently been uncovered in Siberia. This wouldn’t be that cool of a story normally, except for the fact that blood and well-preserved muscle tissue samples have allegedly been collected from the mammoth’s body. Specialists estimate that the animal was 50-60 years old when it died, and suspect that it got caught in ice while trying to escape predators. So why is it so important that this particular mammoth has blood and muscle tissues that are well preserved? Well, in this technologically advanced world we live in, you might have noticed that we have the ability to clone animals. So, now the only unanswered question becomes whether or not scientists could use biological samples taken from this female mammoth to clone it and resurrect the species. Magine just riding mammoths around for the fuck of it. That would be some unreal shit. Score one for wooly mammoths.
