this doesnt sound like a good idea


national geographic for kids

this is a wooly mammoth
here is a wikipedia link telling you all about this now extinct ancient animal

most of us are familiar with this old animal from tv and movies
they died out hundreds or thousands of years ago
the climate and conditions became incompatible with their survival
like whats happening now to a lot of our animals and insects

their carcasses have been found some almost intact in the frozen tundra of the arctic and cold areas of the world
scientists have been able to take their dna from the specimens

these mammoths were large like the african elephant

according to this article the scientist have been able to take the dna and using gene editing will be able to produce a mammoth embryo
this embryo will be implanted into a female african elephant

i wonder if she will have to have a c section to deliver

if this all works
by about 2027 we might have a live wooly mammoth
if it works the scientists want to release it back into the arctic areas

just this morning i was reading about  a super hog from canada
yep its heading down south into the us
it was formed from crossing large farm hogs with a wild feral hog in canada
the new super hog is almost unstoppable
it even survives the cold cold winters in canada by burrowing deep under the snow to survive the cold winters
it is expected to take over the us like the us feral hogs did

is this what will happen with this wooly mammoth

will it be like some monster show where it takes over the world like the feral hog

for me
i like leaving those wooly mammoths in museums movies tv shows cartoons and my memory
not out roaming the countryside

this doesnt sound like a good idea to me
