substitute raptors with some Clovis savages behind an electric fence and we've got a movie.

The last Wooly Mammoth population died out on Wrangel Island in the Arctic Ocean 4,000 years ago according to the latest research, so this isn't that dramatic a reversal of extinction as dinosaurs. Still pretty damn impressive though, and a proof of concept.

What is this? A woolly mammoth for ants?
 
2014-03-14 02:04:47 PM
I approve.
 
2014-03-14 02:04:53 PM
I've heard this for about the last 15 years...they keep saying they are about to revive the extinct wooly mammoth. I can't be the only one who has heard this multiple times.
 
2014-03-14 02:05:35 PM
Why? We can't even take care of the elephants we have now.

Sure enough as soon as a herd is created someone will want to poach them.

There's a large area in West Siberia that has almost exactly the same kind of climate and vegetation as the Mammoths needed. The productivity of the vast Siberian meadows is immense, which means it could still support extinct mammals such as the wooly rhinoceros and the Mammoth in addition to the other surviving ice age fauna such as elk, horses, etc. Perhaps there are smaller enclaves of ice age communities in Alaska or Canada as well. The fact that these areas don't have Mammoths in them today suggests that humans and Neanderthals played a role in the final extinction of the really big fauna rather than climate change, but maybe this time we'll be grown up enough to not shoot them all.

I wonder how much it will cost to shoot one? You know that big game hunters will pay the kind of prices that would get you a hotel room in space to be the first to kill a Mammoth in thousands of years. It's almost inevitable that somebody will come up with big money to kill a Mammoth.

I hope they make sure to buy chicken companions.

Wooly rhinos? Horses are fauna?

Actually, maybe we could make money off the deal.

Think about it:  We could populate northern Canada with them, and *CHARGE* people like twice what it costs to hunt trophy elephant in Africa, and people will pay it.  Plow those funds back into making more Woolly Mammoths.

It's win-win all around:  The very richest hunters get a new species they can make trophies out of, scientists get a source of funding, and the rest of us get to see real mammoths.

Just when I think I've become so jaded over in the Politics tab, I get surprised.  That gave me a good laugh.

Some poacher will kill it for its tusk and pelt.

They aren't flora, so they must be.

People have been talking about it for awhile because the technology was pretty much developed. This just seems to be the first sample with enough intact DNA to consider it.

Did I hear you want some more-a?
Right here on the flora?
And how about you, fauna, y'wanna?

Yeah, but then they'll be poaching Chinese mammoths instead of African elephants. Oh, who am I kidding; they'll be poaching them too.

They should figure out how to grow tusks without the elephants, and then flood the market with them.

/kinda like the idea of herds of wild mammoths wandering around between Kamchatka and northern Norway

Yea. We can have a coupon day or something.

We must have a reason to do this

Because it would be awesome.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: That sounds safer.

But it would make a great steak.
 
2014-03-14 02:37:05 PM
They should bother because AGW will just kill them all again.
 
2014-03-14 02:37:32 PM
Why not start with something safer, like passenger pigeons?

Given the difficulty & expenses involved, they'd be wise to use an auctions system.

I'm glad I scrolled all the way down before attempting to post this exact sentence. I've been burned before.

I dunno but you gotta eat it one bite at a time.
 
2014-03-14 02:45:37 PM
They should clone cows so that beef prices go down

It tastes a lot like rhinoceros, unsurprisingly.

Like a cross between beluga whale and spotted owl.

Maybe.  Maybe they simply ate their own version of the Eucalyptus leaves and when it got all snowy, no more food.

I told you to put that think in the refrigerator, now look at it.
 
2014-03-14 02:53:41 PM
So when can we expect to get cybernetic guard raptors with sharp nasty claws and lasers on their heads?
 
2014-03-14 02:54:55 PM
HAHA!  Creationists believe that humans and mammoths lived at the SAME TIME!!
