Scientists To Clone Ice Age Lion Cubs

After discovering DNA in the remains of extinct Ice Age lion cubs, Scientists are attempting to clone them.

The remains of two cubs were found in the Sakha Repubic, Russia, in near perfect state thanks to the freezing conditions where they were found.

Scientists hope to find living tissue containing DNA in order to recreate the 12,0000 year old cave lion.

 

 

One of the researchers, Semyon Grigoriev, is also working on cloning a mammoth using the same process.
