Scientists are one step closer to bringing a woolly mammoth back to life. A new analysis of the woolly mammoth genome has revealed several adaptations that allowed the furry beasts to thrive in.

    The researchers found that mammoth and elephant DNA were % identical. This is actually similar to what has been found so far between humans and Neanderthals. This similarity makes it much more likely that a mammoth nucleus will be tolerated by an elephant's egg. So it .   That is why Beth Shapiro, a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of California at Santa Cruz, titled her recent book about de-extinction, "How to Clone a Mammoth." It's.
