Thank you Cal. Personally, I would love to have one of these creatures instead of the short lives of dogs/cats. Your news keeps me updated~ For that I applaud you

Wouldn't cross breeding just create a new turtle?

It's a very long time from extinction to ressurection.

If we're to achieve genetic viability.....we need more than two individuals.
