This reminds me, whatever happened to the notion of bringing Wooly Mammoths back through cloning or whatever it was they were doing?

Having grown up hearing about these “sapos conchos”, I’m super glad about this initiative, though I can’t help but wish we could also do this research locally. Either way, I’m excited to see if this can hopefully boost these little guys’ population. Great going!

The implication that Olaf in the movies it’s just a snowman of frozen sperm is too much for me right now

Anyone ever wonder “maybe there’s a reason this species is almost extinct?” And if we’re messing up something by boosting numbers ?
