Scientists Are Bringing Back The Woolly Mammoth And It’s All Due To Dogs

Sound crazy? Perhaps. But with the success that South Korean biotech company Sooam Biotech has had cloning dogs, they decided why not make the jump to huge extinct animals.

The company would most likely attempt to gestate the clone in an elephant, that being the closest species to the woolly mammoth today.

You may remember Sooam as the company that will clone your dog for you (for a hefty price).

What WILL they think of next?
