Scientists Trying To Clone Ice Age Cave Lion
Scientists are attempting to find DNA in the remains of an Ice Age cave lion cub in order to clone the extinct animal. Two cubs were found in Russia's Sakha Republic last August. They were in a state of near-perfect preservation thanks to the deep-freeze conditions of the permafrost where they lay. Researchers hope to find living tissues containing DNA in the remains, which will allow them to recreate the now extinct Ice Age cave lion.
