Yes but imagine the looks on the Chinese faces when T-Rexs are parachuted in and they realize we've weaponized it.

“the lower part of the carcass was very well preserved as it ended up in a pool of water that later froze over.”

That explains the upper part.

Big whoop. We are so far from cloning a mammoth that it will probably never happen in our lifetimes.

Now that Global Cooling is upon us this may be the last hope for a sentient species to survive on Earth. We could train them to log into FR, cook hot dogs, and drink beer with their trunks. What else is there?

Oh, yeah, Nintendo. Gotta come up with a trunk-friendly controller. I'll start working on it.

Bubba would hit it!

I say clone it. That way the first Wookie would have something to relate to.
