It’s not quite Jurassic Park yet, more Pleistocene Park. An international team is to extract DNA from a frozen mammoth and inject it into the egg cells of an African elephant. They reckon they’ll succeed within six years. Read about it here. I want to see an African Forest Elephant (the ones used by Hannibal, now extinct)!
Talking about mammoths, I remember visiting the most incredible site in South Dakota, in the USA. The museum is built on the site of a prehistoric mud hole into which mammoths fell when trying to get water. If I remember correctly, more than 30 mammoth skeletons have been discovered there. If you ever find yourself in South Dakota, DO NOT miss going there. It’s incredible. Check out their website here.
