Blood from a mammoth - level 3

Blood from a mammoth - level 3

05-06-2013 06:00

The body of a mammoth thought to be more than 10.000 years old has been found in the Siberian frost.

"The meat looks quite fresh. It's reddish in color in some parts but I can't say it smells fresh."

Scientists have never found blood so well-preserved. It gives them hope that one day they might be even able to clone the long-extinct beast.

"We have put the sample into the freezer and it didn't freeze at -17 Celsius like we expected. Studying the blood is going to be very exciting."

Attempts to clone mammoth have been happening since the 1990s.

Interesting words: frost (ice), reddish (somewhat red), beast (big animal).
