   Hmmmm..... I wonder.  The cloning process used the DNA from an adult
sheep and fused it with the egg of another sheep.  Would this have worked if
they had used the egg from, say, a goat or a gorilla?

   IF, and I'm sure those who know will correct me, but IF using the egg
from another species of animal wouldn't have worked, it would mean you would
need a live specimen of the species of animal to be cloned to donate an egg.
Bottom line, no cloned dinosaurs.
