Hmm or maybe just in small scale now when think about it.
This has been my dream for over two decades. Sure it’s a sad fact that tons of disovered samples have so fractured dna that it can’t be revived. There’s mammoth dna found for long time now. They’re mostly gathered from preserved frozen soil of Siberia & scientists been working on a proj. to combine these fragments of genetic code with those long ear dumbo living buddies. That’s one of couple experiments that i know of for sure. Yes there’s most likely few thousand years separating those species & over fifty mil years for dinos, but if scientists are successful in producing these extinct species, it could be a big step forward to see this dream that many have had for a long time. So far it’s been sad to know that without access to any dino’s dna, researchers can’t clone them. New fossils are being uncovered from the ground around weekly. However, while this can provide important evidence of a the ‘species’ form, it’s organic material has long since disappeared.
On last year some Usa & China research fellas on this field discovered cartilage that they believe contains dino dna. The cartilage, from the Hypacrosaurus species from the Cretaceous Period, is over seventy mil years old, but has been calcified & fossilized. That forming up may have protected the cells interior. Could a living Dino be created on this day or in near future ? Big minds on this field have stated “”We think we have found signals for dna & there might be tiny bits left, but not enough to use to create one.” Here’s what Jack Horner said about this: “We can get collagen and some dinosaur proteins, but not all the material we need. “If we had the DNA, it would be ridiculous to put it in an ostrich egg. The thing to do would be to grow it in a test tube, because we have no idea how big the embryos of all dinos are. Some dino eggs are the size of ostrich eggs, but for a Tyrannosaur, we think they’re a lot longer & bigger. It’s like thought of putting a human embryo inside a squirrel.” Here’s a bit more about him: Horner is the real paleontologist who inspired the character of Alan Grant in “Jurassic Park.” Since finding his first dino bone at the age of 8, Horner has dug up the first dino embryos, the first dino eggs in the Western world, discovered & named the dino species Maiasaura. He was also the palaeontology consultant for the “Jurassic Park” films. Also while he deems the cloning process pure fiction, it hasn’t stopped Horner from trying to bring back some of the the dinos.
I think that many dino species could be way different than they’ve created to our entertainment screens. That is cause we actually have no clue about their actual behavior. Sure the skeletal structures are known for many, but that’s it. Of course also a lot of info has come from preserved teeth as well. Horner has a bit more friendlier look into possible days of humies & dinos living at same time. I mean as many are saying that it wouldn’t be possible cause of their thought nature. “People always say, ‘Where are you going to put these dinos when you make them?’ I always say that thousands of years ago we started with wolves & now we have chihuahuas,” he said. “Dogs are basically wolves & we don’t really have to contain them. I wouldn’t expect dino-chickens to be the same as the dinosaurs in “Jurassic Park.” They’re going to be domestic animals that we don’t have to worry about. If you were cloning a real Tyrannosaur, you would have to worry about it. Dogs & cats were wild, but now don’t require containment — not to the point of making a park anyway. Not to forget that air was much different on those days so some species may survive better than others.”
I’ve read some more background about his & others who work on this field. Hope that lucky strike from some dig happens in near future & then cloning can be launched and it goes well.
