Scientists have discovered what is called a well-preserved thighbone from an ancient mammoth inside the permafrost in Siberia. The scientists discovered that there is bone marrow inside the giant thighbone that would still have DNA.

According to the scientists, it might actually be possible to clone the mammoth and bring the creature back to life for the first time in about 10,000 years. According to a paper from Japan the scientists plan on starting joint research next year to determine of cloning the animal is possible.

The idea is that if they can replace the nuclei of an egg cell from an elephant with nuclei from a cell in the bone marrow embryos with mammoth DNA can be created. The embryos would then be implanted into an elephant to give birth. The two species are very closely related.
