The Return of the Mammoth

Mammoth 'could be reborn in four years'

Sudden acceleration of the theoretical timetable, but of course Dr. Iritani is an optimist. He doesn't even have his base DNA yet.

It raises the question: To what degree is a single member of a social species, born and raised among and by another species, really a member of its species? Won't it have serious social and psychological issues?

These considerations will not, of course, stop me from going "Oh, SQUEEEEE! Baby mammoth!" if Dr. Iritani's dream comes true.
