Oh FUCK Yeah: Firm Raises $15 Million To Bring Back The Wooly Mammoth
If you've followed me and dogwalk you know that I fucking LOVE the Wooly Mammoth. Those are just two pieces of content above when I am talking about old sweet ass animals. I love all the extinct animals from the pleistocene era. Don't even get me started on the short-faced bear. BIG development today for the old animal community. A company is bringing back the Wooly Mammoth. Arguably the face of extinct animals.
“Our goal is to make a cold-resistant elephant, but it is going to look and behave like a mammoth. Not because we are trying to trick anybody, but because we want something that is functionally equivalent to the mammoth, that will enjoy its time at -40C, and do all the things that elephants and mammoths do, in particular knocking down trees,” Church told the Guardian.
Scientists in Siberia have been trying to bring back the Wooly Mammoth for at least a decade now. The thinking is that the Mammoth will somehow keep the frozen perma-frost...frozen. It's thawing at an alarming rate (in case you hadn't heard) and releasing all sorts of green houses gasses and theoretically viruses and bacteria that we have no defenses for because they've been locked in the ground since Noah's flood. How the wooly mammoth keeps the ground frozen, I don't have the slightest fucking idea, but if that logic is what it takes to bring back that big fuzzy ass Snuffleupagus then so be it. The world will be a better place with hairy elephants roaming around Siberia and Canada whether they fix global warming or not.
