|Scientists want to bring mammoths back to life
Scientists want to bring back the woolly mammoth - an ancestor of the elephant. It became extinct 4,000 years ago. The idea to bring it back to life is like something from the movie Jurassic Park. Scientists will use the DNA from mammoth bones to clone the giant animal. It would be the first time since the Ice Age for a mammoth to walk on the earth. The lead scientist is a geneticist from Harvard. He is an expert in editing DNA and genes. Ben Lamm, a businessman working on the project, said: "Our goal is to have our first calves in the next four to six years."
