← Regenerating a Mammoth for $10 Million

I really don't think this is a good idea, Mammoth had its chance and Natural Selection said it was time to call it a day, why would you want to bring something back that has been extinct for so long?

I would possibly accept a recent species that had been wiped out due to human interference but this is a creature that is going to be introduced to an environment that it simply will not be able to adapt to surely?

I don't know, am I wrong about this? I think it is an enormously interesting thing to be able to do and very clever indeed, but I still have massive doubts as to whether this is a good idea or not.
