The idea of cloning a mammoth, the science of which is explored in evolutionary biologist and “ancient DNA expert” Beth Shapiro’s new book, How to Clone a Mammoth, is the subject of considerable debate. One can only imagine what the animal kingdom would think of such an undertaking, but wonder no more. PUP staffers were feeling “punny” enough to ask their best friends:
Chester can’t get past “ice age bones”.
Buddy thinks passenger pigeons would be so much more civilized… and fun to chase.
Tux always wanted to be an evolutionary biologist…
Stella thinks 240 pages on a glorified elephant is a little excessive. Take her for a walk.
A mammoth weighs how much?! Don’t worry, Murphy. The tundra is a long way from New Jersey.
