The cave lion was NOT a separate species, the DNA analysis revealed that it was, well, just lion - a little bit more adapted to the cold climate.It would not make sense to clone them (the journalists have fun as usual)[email protected], learning how to actually clone one of these animals can give us insights into how to protect current species.Berezhnov spotted the carcass of an 'unrecognisable animal' in September after a drop in the river's water level. Dr Protopopov told journalists the preservation of the remains of a lion cub may allow an attempt at cloning.From the article: "It is not yet clear whether the cub was male or female." By today's Political Correctness standards, shouldn't that read, "It is not yet clear whether the cub considered itself to be male or female on the day it died? Why clone an animal that is d8rectly related to other animals we are pushing to extinction. We do n9t need to clone lions to mamahe wild herbivores, we need to let the apex predators do that.The main benefit from cloning would serve the very wealthy...think big game parks/ zoos...would be morally bereft to clone bring back an animal.treat it so inhumanly..to the guy from NY..called the person from the EU a communist...Socialism and Communism are COMPLETELY different, and by the way our system of Oligarchs, here in the US is MUCH worse!
I´d love to hear you comment on how the humans might have be the cause of their extinction 20.000-50.000 years ago.
As far as I know, air polution by industrial revolution etc.
has started some years after they were already extincted...
It is not yet clear whether the cub was male or female.
Expert Dr Albert Protopopov said: 'It is a perfectly preserved lion cub, all the limbs have survived.
