    As part of a "Lazarus Project" to try to bring the Australian gastric-brooding frog back from extinction scientists have succeeded in producing early stage cloned embryos containing the DNA of the frog, which died out 30 year ago. Gastric-brooding frogs were unique in incubating their young in their stomachs. a2TO_24fMU8.gif

    So to give birth they throw up? Interesting...
    I wonder if they have fixed the cloning process and the clones will have a full lifespan?

    This is really interesting subject to me. I'm curious if the clone will live a full lifespan too.

    I WANT A PREHISTORIC TURTLE!!!! They were large enough to eat a humpback whale without any issues!!!! I could take over the world with one!!! or atleast swim across the largest ocean in like an hour.

    I'm prey sure having a T Rex would pretty much be the ultimate bragging rights! Althoug it may be hard to find a vet...

    But a trex is only good on land and they cant cary much of anything...a turtle goes on land and sea and has a built in armor!!! plus they had teeth!!! can you imagine a humongus killer turtle with teeth? everyone would be all "oh a pet turtle? thats nice dear." then the turtle would come out of the water and eat them!!! No one would expect it!!!

    I love how they are trying to bring this frog species back!! If they are 100% successful maybe then they can bring back other recent extinct species such as the passenger pigeon.

    Puentemys mushaisaensis 5ft round turtle. Even with its mouth wide open, Titanoboa wouldn't have been able to down this turtle, not whole at least.

    But that doesnt compare to the Archelon ischyros at 16 ft long and 4,500 lbs.

    Easy enough to avoid, just don't go swimming! Score 1 for me

    I'm still working on how to get around that titano boa though...
