An example of such an animal is the Tasmanian Tiger. If it is
possible, would the mechanisms involved be similar to that
employed to clone sheep?
Recently, nuclei taken from the skin cells of pigs, rats, sheep
and even cynomolgus monkeys were transplanted into cows' eggs and
these embryos developed as far as blastocysts. Perhaps this can
be employed to bring back the Tasmanian Tiger?
