I would like to see the dodo bird live again, as well as the passenger pigeon

Crazy to think in 100 years we wiped out 5 billion passenger pigeons.

I agree with killer. Why the fuck are they bringing back dumb shit like little striped tiger looking things when they could bring back a badass motherfucking T-Rex? Quit fucking around guys, give the people what the fucking people want!!!

Says the guy that was outsmarted by an avocado.

One of us is drinking hard seltzers, dancing, raping and partying. The other is turning brown and dying. I'll see if you can figure out which is really which and who outsmarted who. I don't have much hope in your ability to get it right LOL.

Now you're raping? I better go check your gardening threads to see which vegetable is getting plowed.

Being that we love passing laws against everything, we should probably nip this area of "research" in the bud before it gets out of hand.

Gonna take a lot of work.

Even cloned pets are not identical...meaning there's more in the "primordial soup" that gives an organism its signature.

Was looking up stuff 12 years ago and came across an article where a woman got a clone of her pet but the behavior wasn't quite the same.

I'd rather see the T Rex. Humans could use the humility of having apex predators roaming around.
Well, we just gotta de-evolve the chicken and then we can get the T-Rex.


(Cold hard lesson that evolution is about forced environment suitability and not an absolute "git better" concept)

Why should the behavior be the same? It grew up years if not decades later in a possibly completely different environment with the owner having changed as well, of course it will be different.

For the Tasmanian devil it doesn't even matter at all if it has a different behavior than the source animal.
