These prehistoric animals can resurrect!

The fantastic film "Jurassic Park", which tells about the resurrection of dinosaurs, in fact, may not be so unreal. Genetics and bioengineering are mastering cloning with might and main, and the day is not far off when prehistoric animals will be recreated. Those who are lucky to get a second life, we will tell in our article.

10 prehistoric animals that can resurrect

The situation with the resurrection of animals that lived before our era was already modeled by Steven Spielberg in his Oscar-winning film “Jurassic Park”. There, scientists brought the dinosaurs back to life by using genetic material derived from the blood of ancient mosquitoes frozen in amber.

Dinosaurs

Modern science is still not able to completely recreate a living creature by DNA, but many researchers are sure that this will be possible soon. And then they will need intact genetic material, which can be extracted from the remnants of the skin, wool, etc.Therefore, the following prehistoric animals are the most likely candidates for resurrection.

Moa

Moa - the name of flightless birds, which look like ostriches, were once the largest birds on Earth. Although you can call them birds only with a stretch, because they were deprived of even the likeness of wings. Moa DNA has already been isolated from the ancient shell, and scientists are working on the problem of the revival of these amazing birds.

Giant sloth

The ancestor of the current three-toed sloths wandered around the planet relatively recently - in the sixth millennium BC. The researchers were able to detect the remains of his coat and freeze the animal's DNA. Finding a surrogate mother to harbor such a huge young one among the representatives of its species will be difficult, but scientists do not lose hope to grow it artificially.

Giant deer

The giant deer who lived during the ice age fully justified its name. He was truly huge. The width of its horns reached 3.5 meters. The wool of this giant is still found in the north, in the ice of permafrost.

Saber-toothed tiger

Extinct in the eighth millennium BC, these prehistoric animals are among the first candidates to return to life. By the way, saber-toothed tigers - the name is not quite correct, since the bones found suggest that these predators were just big cats. Particles of their wool are preserved in wood resin, and therefore scientists are sure: over time it will be possible to clone these creatures.

Neanderthal

Neanderthals did not live long - an average of 22.5 years. Scientists suggest that these homo owned a speech, were short (only 165 cm), light-skinned and red-haired. Since they are considered to be the progenitors of a modern person, the probability of their revival to life is somewhat doubtful, because human cloning is officially prohibited.

What prehistoric animals still live on Earth?

In contrast to the above, some representatives of the animal world of prehistoric times were much more fortunate. They survived, despite the natural disasters, adapted to the new conditions of existence and took their place in the environment of modern fauna. We will list some of them.

Horsetails

During its existence, this inhabitant of the seas has not changed. The adult, covered with a shell resembling a soldier’s helmet, is 90 cm long. Their immediate relatives — spiders and scorpions — had long since settled on land, and the Sword-Bearers decided not to change their native element — water. These animals live in shallow water, move along the bottom, like crabs, and swim their shells down.

Lamprey

This fish, whose age has passed for 360 million years, can be called a vampire. It is not much like ordinary carp and perch, because it does not have jaws. They are replaced by a sucker-mouth with which they attach to other fish, suck their blood and eat muscle mass.

Chinese salamander

This amphibian is called giant, because its length can reach 1.8 meters. Appeared 170 million years ago, today it is on the verge of extinction. The number of these salamanders was reduced by the fault of man, which pollutes the environment of his habitat and catches amphibians for medical needs.

Shark-brownie

A terrible creature living at great depths and reaching 4 meters in length.Although in this case, the appearance is deceptive: this shark does not attack humans, feeding on squid, fish and crabs. By the way, this terrible creature of the ocean has a nice pink color. Here is a paradox of nature.

Echidna

Echidna is one of the few egg-laying mammals on Earth. The ancient Greeks nicknamed her "mother of monsters", although, in our opinion, this animal is not much like a monster. He doesn't even have teeth. Catching her long sticky tongue of ants and termites, she simply crushes them in her mouth and then swallows them.

Jellyfish

The well-known translucent sea beauty is the old-timer of the planet - she turned 700 million years old. In our seas and oceans there are specimens whose weight is a few quintals, and the umbrella radius exceeds 1 meter. However, this does not prevent scientists from referring jellyfish to a species of plankton.

These are not all prehistoric animals that have preserved their population to the present day. It is a pity that man today destroys what nature has given a chance to survive. The sturgeon gradually disappears from the face of the Earth, the number of crocodiles becomes less and less, and the account of the dwarf whales goes by one.Maybe we should try to forget the consumer habits and remember about the main purpose of humanity - creation?
