They were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should!
i say do it. clone baby clone!
if it's possible that is...
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.

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...

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...
You missed my point. I was trying to say similar to tissue culture it is done all the time with people who can't have kids naturally hence the term test tube baby. That is what I was trying to say. I know it's impossible to tissue culture any animal from cells but it is possible to get embryos started in vitro.Originally Posted by [b
while I doubt that it can be cloned, it would be a sight...
and as far as what we would do if it got lose? I suppose an M1 could not only survive a munching, but would be far more than powerful enough to put it down should the need arise, that being said, you could probably take one down with any big game weapon. I just like the thought of an M1's armor wrapped around me if I was in the presence of it.
lol, wouldn't it be funny if it had the personality of a puppy though.
\"Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look at the word itself: \"Mankind\". Basically, it\'s made up of two separate words - \"mank\" and \"ind\". What do these words mean ? It\'s a mystery, and that\'s why so is mankind.\" ~ Jack Handey
Ah right, in vitro. But then that comes back to the question of where you would put in after that... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]Originally Posted by [b
Which also brings up the point of why I am not a scientist.I don't have the slightest clue of where you'd stick a developing tyrannosaur embryo. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]Originally Posted by [b
