The first cloned dog (Snuppy) recently made the headlines, which brought cloning to the forefront again.
I’m not really into the whole cloning thing, but it’s interesting (if not scary) how far they’ve come in such a short time.
In researching stories about the first cloned animals as pets, I found the following information…
To date, the following animals have been sucessfully cloned:
(starting with the most recent)
- The first cloned horse (2003)
- The first cloned endangered species (2001)
- The first cloned cow (1994)
- The first cloned lamb (1984)
Then I Found This…
- Human embryos were cloned, but didn’t survive in 2001.
- More about the human cloning procedure.
- The pros & cons of human cloning.
I must be out of the “cloning loop”… I had no idea it had come to this already!
What I Learned Today:
“Dolly” was named after Dolly Parton!
Genetic Savings & Clone (…get it?)
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
