"An international team of scientists has reconstructed more than three-quarters of the genome of the woolly mammoth using DNA extracted from balls of hair, the first time this has been accomplished for an extinct species."

I don't know about anyone else, but I really want a pet woolly mammoth.

We were discussing this earlier. I would be fine with bringing back Mammoths and dinosaurs, as long they let us hunt them. :D

Hey, great! Now we can argue about the smallest calibur needed to take down a Mastodon! A .270 won't cut it, how about this!!

Anything smaller than .308 is asking for trouble. I'd recommend .50 BMG.

This would work if you could get the hairy elephant to stand still!

I'd recommend .50 BMG.The Buffalo gun 45.70 black powder round would do it but the Double Barreled Elephant Rifle with Elephant/Cape Buffalo .600 cal round would be best !The .416 Rigby, .416 Remington Magnum, .458 Winchester Magnum, .460 Weatherby Magnum and .470 NE.
.700 Nitro Express
