Re: Bringing Back Mammoths (was Dinosaur Mating Displays)

That's a good point, and it may well apply to some of the other
animals as well - bison, for example, which have been absent in
Siberia and hanging around exclusively in North America for at least
what, 15,000-20,000 years?

Ooh . . . and don't modern baby elephant pick up necessary digestive
microbes by ingesting the droppings of their elders? Even if we use
modern elephants as "hosts," there's no absolute guarantee that their
microbial flora will be safe or adequate for such a highly-derived
grazer of a mammoth . . .
