While it seems like something that could only come to life on the big screen, scientists said cells from a woolly mammoth that died 28,000 years ago are showing signs of activity.
The woolly mammoth cells were implanted in a mouse, according to research published in Scientific Reports.
The cells were found in 2011 in the Siberian permafrost, the report said.
The research published in the article doesn’t give researchers hope for a “Jurassic Park” sort of scenario just yet because the damage done to the cells was very profound, according to AFP.
In an interview with AFP one researcher said the institute he was with plans to study and maybe even clone the mammoth. He also said there plans to study other ways to "bring the prehistoric giant back to life."
