1st clone of U.S. endangered species is ferret created from genes of animal dead for 3 decades | KTLA
Scientists have cloned the first U.S. endangered species, a black-footed ferret duplicated from the genes of an animal that died over 30 years ago.
The slinky predator named Elizabeth Ann, born Dec. 10 and announced Thursday, is cute as a button. But watch out — unlike the domestic ferret foster mom who carried her into the world, she’s wild at heart.
Which is to say, they're vicious predators, but cute. I can't wait until they clone mastodons and giant sloths.
