Jurassic Park?

This could get interesting.

MOSCOW (AP) — A perfectly preserved woolly mammoth carcass with liquid blood has been found on a remote Arctic island, fueling hopes of cloning the Ice Age animal, Russian scientists said Thursday.

The carcass was in such good shape because its lower part was stuck in pure ice, said Semyon Grigoryev, the head of the Mammoth Museum, who led the expedition into the Lyakhovsky Islands off the Siberian coast.

“The blood is very dark, it was found in ice cavities bellow the belly and when we broke these cavities with a poll pick, the blood came running out,” he said in a statement released by the North-Eastern Federal University in Yakutsk, which sent the team.

Wooly mammoths are thought to have died out around 10,000 years ago, although scientists think small groups of them lived longer in Alaska and on islands off Siberia.

  1. It will only be interesting if there’s a big eyed, gray space person in it’s stomach. Or if it can be determined that it was somebody’s pet.

  2. Wait until Monsanto takes this farmer to court for not paying for the seeds that ruined his crop.
    How dare someone try to grow something without paying Monsanto.
