No it doesn't. Sounds like some kind of drug.

Jurassic Park.

Actually, we can't. There's simply not enough dinosaur genetic material left.

We can however, prevent the extinction of currently endangered species by taking samples of their DNA and placing those in protective storage.

Yeah, the success of probably being able to clone Thylacines, is that they found some well-preserved Thylacine specimines in the vaults of the Hobart Museum. Including as mentioned a 'pickled' Tassie Tiger pup. Which might also be advantageous if this whole thing about Dolly is true where her telomeres are actually as old as the sheep was where the clone was taken. I.e. still born a lamb - but with the genetic "health" of a sheep.

That was the problem in Jurassic park, they replaced missing strands of Dinosaur genetic material with frog DNA. I wonder why they didn't use crocodile DNA? I guess it didn't fit the story line about them changing gender like some frogs can do.

That's another plan they are going to try to attempt in Australia... we have Cane Toads here - introduced into Northern Queensland back in the 19th century to eradicate the cane-beetle. It didn't work. They are a big environmental nusence. They are all up and down the Queensland Coast, as far a Norther NSW. They are really worried that they will soon reach Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory, where they would do some REAL damage. They eat other native fauna, like frogs etc. And they produce a poison from glands at the back of their neck/head when threatened. So things eating them die like Dingoes, Dogs, Cats, Lizards, Snakes, Birds etc. Plus they are REALLY gross. So what they are planning to do is release a ?virus? that will only leave the one sex of Cane Toad - thus they'll eventually die out!

I think Daryus is one of those people who replaced their name to something no one recognized, and then posted in the 'who are you' thread without even mentioning the old name... i could be mistaken though...
