Extinct Ibex Cloned

An extinct ibex (a kind of mountain goat) was successfully cloned using DNA from skin samples taken from the last-known living member of the species.

Sadly the clone had defects in its lungs and died after only seven minutes, but it’s still a big step. You know what this means…next up, dinosaurs!
