Instead of the romantic idea of bringing an ice age animal back to life, shouldn’t we put our best efforts into saving endangered elephants?
In 2013 a remarkably well-preserved mammoth was excavated from the permafrost on Maly Lyakhovsky island, northern Siberia. It was May, and a balmy -10C. Snow lay on the ground. But when the team cut into the frozen carcass, a dark red-brown fluid oozed out. A fluid that looked exactly like blood.
