The scientists from the USA have decided to start an interesting experiment. They plan to revive animals that disappeared thousands of years ago… Mammoths will inhabit the Earth again.
This statement was made during the annual meeting of the Association for the Advancement of Sciences. The experts from Harvard led by George Church are planning to spend for experiment two years. The scientists will bring a hybrid of mammoth and the Asian elephant.
The scientists theorize that the first samples will be more like elephants than their shaggy ancestors. The name of the new animal is already invented – «mammophant». This being will have small ears, the stock of fat and thick fur. Blood of new animal will sustain a significant drop in temperature.
Besides the fact that the revival of the mammoths is an unprecedented phenomenon in the scientific world, this experiment still aims to preserve the population of Asian elephants. These animals are on the verge of extinction.
