    You know what happened when they tried cloning dinosaurs , some guy created a theme park called jurassic park on and the dinosaurs started taking over the whole place and eating people [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    They were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should!

    Hmm allthough I support the potential cloning of a dinosaur this does beg the ethical question of should we? Cloning this isn't like trying to bring back the wooly mammoth or the thylacine. These creatures are the size of a bus with 6 inch teeth that could swallow a man whole in one bite. What if this were to get loose? Also does anyone realise how much space a fullgrown T-Rex would need? These were creatures that hunted on the open plains of the northwest. Speaking of which would it be ethical to bring back a creature that is in a completely alien environment that we have no idea how to care for it? The difference in oxygen/carbon dioxide/barometric pressure levels etc from the environment these creatures were found in millions of years ago could be so drastic it could kill the animal when it reached a certain size. Also what would we feed it? Would the meat of today's animals have all the nutrition a growing T-Rex were to need? I personally think that before people even begin to start thinking about cloning they would have to have all this stuff prefigured out.

    I seriously doubt they will be able to clone T-rex. First-they need to bring back the passenger pigeon etc. etc.

    As far as the ethical question goes-as far as science is concerned even if the cloned T-rex does not survive it will give alot of info on a T-rex embryo. However-I don't think this will ever happen.

    I doubt a croc egg would be good for a t-rex lol.
    Actually they would probably grow it in vitro sort of like tissue culturing. However that's a big if as the DNA would be so degraded and full of holes that it is highly unlikely cloning of fresh tissue samples today is still a highly uncertain process let alone DNA that is 70 million years old.
    TISSUE CULTURE? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] What, put a few cells in a petri dish filled with nutrients and a baby T-rex grows out? I don't think so. Dude, if you're thinking about tissue culture then you got too many plants in your head... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    And I doubt after all these years of evoltuion that there would be any animal genetically close enough to clone aT-rex, let alone the uncertainty of cloning itself...
