    Pretty much yeah. It doesn't appear so far that there's a way to recreate the woolly mammoth 100% authentically.

    In Jurassic Park biologists had to reconstruct the missing strands of dinosaur dna using lizard dna. If in reality they have 100% mammoth dna then 100% of the elephant's dna will be replaced.

    They used frog DNA in that movie.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I was thinking that was the case but it didn't make sense. (I've never seen it anyway because the movie looks so -- dumb.)

    Why use a frog's dna?
