Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus may want to keep its elephant equipment around for a few years. Scientists at Harvard claim they’re just two years away from de-extincting the woolly mammoth, which hasn’t been seen on Earth for 4,500 years. Will it be something for...
A team of scientists from Harvard is attempting to create a “mammophant” — essentially an elephant with mammoth-like features.
The woolly mammoth vanished from the Earth 4,000 years ago, but now scientists say they are on the brink of resurrecting the ancient beast in a revised form, through an ambitious feat of genetic engineering. Speaking ahead of the American...Show More Summary
This whole nostalgia thing is getting out of control because scientists are about to bring back the woolly mammoth, the Guardian reports. Harvard professor George Church—who New Scientist calls a "maverick geneticist"—is leading a "de-extinction" team that says it's about two years away from creating a hybrid embryo...
Picture this: A beast with most of the features of a woolly mammoth (think long, shaggy hair, plus special adaptations to sub-zero temperatures, like subcutaneous fat and specially-adapted blood) plus a few elephant-like traits (like...Show More Summary

The woolly mammoth went extinct thousands of years ago, but the story of the species may not be over
Everything old is new again.
Did we learn nothing from “Jurassic Park?” A Harvard University scientist told The Guardian this week that his team is only two years from resurrecting some traits of the woolly mammoth, which went extinct during the last ice age. The...Show More Summary
BUT WHAT ABOUT ITS CARBON FOOTPRINT? Woolly mammoth on the verge of resurrection, scientists say. And if we want to prevent them from going extinct a second time, open a chain of MammothBurger fast casual restaurants.
Woolly mammoths haven't roamed the earth for roughly 4,000 years, but that could soon change. Scientists at Harvard University say they are about two years away from making a hybrid woolly mammoth embryo. Thus far, they've been able to isolate the genes that make the Ice Age creatures unique from their closest modern relatives, the Asian elephant. Show More Summary
