If only they would clone you and use you as a motor vehicle test dummy.

But it was adapted to a land of almost 10,000 B.C. Times have changed. So you would also have to create food sources, etc. And, then of course, is the human factor, which was not a factor back then. Humans would exploit them for a buck.

So we should create food sources for them. I don't see a problem there. It can be compensated by profits from tourism.

Besides man, the Mammouth had another predator, the saber-toothed tiger. Should we clone that, too? And, as the balance of nature has changed and adapted after their dissapearance , are we going to let them adapt, or do we recreate an enviornment as it was. Or just confine them in one huge nature park, as they were the approx. size as our modern elephant.

And, as they were also living in North America, I want one, too. I could have the first Wooly Mammouth ranch. As I already have a huge tooth of one, maybe it also has the DNA in it.

I bet, if they were to take DNA from the above Smelly or Puke the ugliest dogs could be formed.

You need a bone marrow, not tooth. I doubt this DNA still exist somewhere. Mammoth's marrow exist because they were quickly frozen alive.

If we have DNA, it can be used to clone the mammoth. I see nothing unusual there.

I doubt you russians could pull a Dolly on the world no offense. Leave the cloning to the british.

Interesting from a scientific point of view, but I doubt that it will not have any other significance.

I don't think that you can repopulate a whole specie from a single source. Genetically, there would be problems of consanginity, I presume.

So, apart from a few clones, I doubt if the scientists could recreate a herd, for example.

You must be using yourself as an example. Certainly, you can not be reproduced, and if a herd of you could, we would place you on a deserted island, and have hunters pay to hunt and shoot you.

But as a tooth owner, I should have first dibs on one for our North American legal rights and entitlement. I will raise it and sell it's manure to SLOvaks and FinnTURDS as a food stuff. True fact, that elephant manure is the best and most valuable manure in the world for crop growth fertilizer. Except in the case of the above noted slovak and FinnTurd, who will use it as a food source .
