Science often asks some fascinating and intriguing questions...even if it will never happen. Wonder if a mix between a spider and a giant squid would go anywhere...who would want to be out in a canoe and see one of them coming at you? Put on the water skis and rev up that engine.

Silly me, a canoe has no engine...beam me up Scotty.

Some scientists hope to extract DNA (organic material that holds the instructions for life) from a frozen mammoth and insert it into an elephant egg to create an embryo.

Oh, so that's how it's done. For a moment there, I was concerned.

Just how big is a mammoth embryo?

Or did I miss the point? lol
