    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...
    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.

    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.

    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]

    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]

    ive got several rifles that could bring down a T Rex but the question is when i got close enough for the bullet to do the job would i be able to stop shaking long enough to put the bullet in the right place?

    It would be awesome indeed, as far as "ethics", "should we" it's just people trying to put some lofty religious bent into science where it doesn't belong. I also know a lot of punk rockers who are anti-cloning too, and they don't even know what it is!

    Anyway, I doubt we'll ever get to see a T rex, they were never able (that I know of) to clone that Mammoth they found in russia a few years ago on the discovery channel. They had it all planned out:
    female egg from elephant > remove DNA strand
    insert mammoth DNA strand>fertilize with elephant DNA
    f1=mammoth/elephant hybrid
    repeat similar procedures on hybrid offspring until a "pure" creature was attained.
    But this was only their theory, and hasn't happened yet and may not even be possible.

    AWSOME! I love stuff like that. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Thanks! That's really amazing.
