I heard science has just found a better way to extract dna from prehistoric hair. How long until we have a Wooly Mammoth clone?

That's what I'm talkin 'bout.

How'd you manage to cross a housefly with a dog? Did you get ahold of Jeff Goldblum's teleportation device?

years of feeding him wet dogfood and scaring the bejesus outta him when he is asleep ;)

Lampmonster: airsupport: packrabid04: That's not a dog!!

THIS is a dog.

That's a horse.

Ah, I see you've played doggey horsey before.

Son of a whore! That's exactly what I wanted to say when I saw that, but now I can't.

Also, from TFA:
A wooly mammoth, which last roamed the Earth nearly two million years ago

Correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't they around until about 10,000 years ago? I thought they died out at the end of the last ice age.

Did someone say mammoth bone?

/he'd chew it up in 5 minutes
2007-10-03 06:44:27 PM  
"Remains like this are quite common in the area, but it was a wonderful achievement for a little dog to find it. She may have thought it looked quite appetising and there may well be a very small percentage of amino acids still left in it.

"Chewing on the bone might help to clean her teeth, but she would not be able to extract any goodness or nutrition from it.

"It would certainly have been very tasty a couple of million years ago, when it would have had bits of fat attached to it - but it is now heavily mineralised with iron oxide."

So? Let her have it.

Yeah, unless it is God's severed toe bone, it can't be older than 6000 years or so.

Your dog wants mammoth bones meat and veggie cake!

/really easy to make! Fresh ground beef, middle layer of ground healthy veggies w/ omega-3 oil and "frosted" with fat-free ricotta cheese (a littel goes a long way) and sprinkled with a little bit of cheddar shreds and carrot shavings!
//YES I am a dork for my dog and it was her birthday so SHUT UP

What about: "All these bones are yours, except for the mammoth. Attempt no chewing there. Chew them together. Chew them in peace.

PictureScary: perhaps they mean this particular mammoth last wandered the earth two million years ago

According to Wikipedia, most were created 6000 years ago having already been dead for 6000 years

It isnt.

"Remains like this are quite common in the area, but it was a wonderful achievement for a little dog to find it."

Since when what tripping over a bone a "wonderful achievment"?

"The bone is very thick because it would have had to support the weight of the elephant," he added."

What would we do without the chairman of the local geology groups witty comments?

//that dog looks like it could sure lick some peanut butter..Mmm..Hmm

Garfield226: FTA: "going walkies"?

Guess that "writing for third graders" thing kicked in quicker than I thought.

That's what our fellows across the big pond call taking their dog for a walk.
