SCIENTISTS CLONE DINOSAUR!

GAINESVILLE, FL – Scientists at the University of Florida have successfully cloned a dinosaur, a spokesman from the university said yesterday.
The dinosaur, a baby Apatosaurus nicknamed “Spot,” is currently being incubated at the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine.
The scientists extracted DNA from preserved Apatosaurus fossils, which were on display at the university’s museum of natural science. Once the DNA was harvested, scientists injected it into a fertile ostrich womb.
“Ostriches share a lot of genetic traits with dinosaurs,” said Dr. Norman Trudell, a biology professor at UF and the project’s leading scientist. “Their eggshell microstructures are almost identical to those of the Apatosaurus. That’s why the cloning worked so perfectly.”

Those in the scientific community say the dinosaur cloning – the first ever of its kind – is a milestone for genetic engineering.
“I used to think this kind of thing could only happen in the movies,” said Dr. Sven Bjornsen, a UF chemistry professor. “But we’re making it happen right here in our lab. It’s astounding.”
The cloning attracted the attention of a wide variety of animal rights activists and religious groups. They claim that animal cloning is unethical and immoral.
PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk criticized the scientists for performing potentially life threatening threats on a new species.
“These scientists brought an animal from the Jurassic age back to life – just to watch it suffer!” she said.
But Dr. Trudell doesn’t seem to be bothered by the activists’ quibbling. He says that the opportunities afforded by dinosaur cloning are endless.
Within ten years, we could repopulate the world with dinosaurs,” he said. “We could harvest them for civic service, law enforcement, or even mass transportation.”
“Imagine riding to work on a dinosaur,” he continued. “Wouldn’t that be incredible?”
As of press time, the dinosaur is in stable condition. Scientists plan to run more tests on him today.

  1. Something this big would be everywhere by now, but it's only being covered by this site? It must be fake.. But I wish it wasn't. I can't anything else about 'Spot' anywhere! And if it was real it would have been born by now 🙁

  2. Fake,Fake,Fake all of this is fake even if its a real dinosaur it can kill us and the dinosaur is to goddamm large to put on transportation .God made us AFTER the dinosaurs were dead and now ur bringing them back to life!?? God killed those dinosaurs for a reason dude, for human life to be more safe and they have enough goddamm bears,tigers,and sharks to kill -__-.

    • @UnBeliever Yes, dude, u r tottaly right. Who do they think they r when they expect to believe in this sh*t.People r dying in earthquakes, car accidents, flodds nd in all kinds of stuff, an they clone dinosaur?!?!?!? Well, no president is that dumb to allow research in times like this….Besides, no one believes in this…and who cares…Anyway, it was pretty funny to read, altough no one believed in it….Just few more words:FAKE, FAKE, FAKE, FAKE, FAKEEEEEE!!!!!!!

  3. You realised that this website is pretty ironic how its "The world's only reliable news", when this article is pretty fake .
    not to mention but the other fake articles and rumours such as the facebook incident

  4. Yes we really did. I work at the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine along with Dr. Sven Bjornsen. We have been working for 10 years in this project and now we are happy to announce to all the world that we nailed it. Spot is a very cute baby.

  5. Now that we have successfully cloned dinosaurs, I hope that in the near future we can start to own one as pet. I'm really excited to put a "BEWARE OF TYRANNOSAURUS REX" sign on the front lawn. ☺

  6. Whats next ?! Yeah I know….Cloning the Pharaoh !!! Then we will all have a night at the museum !!!…Just why there is a running business for telling lies ?!?! change the domain name to LiesYouLoveToHear.com or something !!! do not refer to it as if it was the real thing !!!

  7. Umm… isn't this website SUPPOSED to be satirical?
    Anyway, the Apatosaurus is a sauropod, meaning: 4 legs, long neck and plant eating. So the picture shown is completely irrelevant 😛

  8. i know its fake but,
    If they r thinking to do that .i will suggest not to think about it bcs if it will completed we have to suffer and at the end there will be a high tension of destroying them.

  9. That is assuming that we didnt once run with dinosaurs….. Believing in us being created after Dinosaurs is not of any God that I know…..

  11. i don't know bout dis site, but in our village back in mama rasha we already have living dinos, we use them as means of transportation up and down the mountains. so, this news is kinda late 😉

  12. Oooookay…if there is any truth to this then these people need to watch what was the end result in the first Jurassic Park flick…trying to bring back dinosaurs is insanity…otherwise I like the Dino-sauce-r-ous joke. LOL

    people, the weekly world news is a satirical tabloid. it always has been, and probably always will be.
    let me straighten you guys out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weekly_World_News
    the WWN is fake, the end.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apatosaurus
    the dinosaur referred to in the article is far from even similar to the 2 different species pictured above…

    • Is there a single person who ACTUALLY beleives it is true? I mean you would think that the WWN shop picture is enough to sway people. "Aliens abduct cheerleaders"? Congratulations on pointing out the visual stimuli that is right next to your comment.

  16. If this is all true then I really hope that it works……but i still feel a little bit weird about the experiments you will perform on it ( if it really will hatch)……..I hope it doesnt end like in Jurassic Park….

  17. wow think about this people it doesn't make any since! why did dinosaurs die off in the first place? CLIMATE CHANGE! if they couldn't survive then, how the hell could they survive now??? this (and every thing on this stupid website) IS FAKE!

  19. Strange that there is absolutely nothing about this on the University of Florida website.
    Or any other real news website either for that matter. You would think that something as monumental as cloning an actual dinosaur would make headline news across the world.
    …FAKE!!

    • well they wouldnt tell anybody because government is trying to keep it secret do's that answer you neil !

  20. sure i could actually see someone riding a dino to work omg wheres the brakes on this thing and also where in the hell would you park if that is even possible regardless it is not a dog you can't just tell it to sit and stay also what would you feed the dino even if it was a herbivore then there goes all of our trees i could go on and on about how stupid this idea is but what is the purpose the dr. is going to do what he wants anyway he is just a little crazy with his thoughts people this is just not right.. Even if it is true dinos already had their time on earth and we already live with enough dangerous animals as it is this Dr. needs to face reality and anybody else who agrees with what UoF is trying to do do something better cure cancer or some other disease or how about trying to fix our planet from further disasters

  21. why in the world would u clone a dino would u go to the bathroom and leave your kid with it what if it eats them. Thank u scientists trying to put lives in danger i bet u our lives would turn out to be like j******c park do want to be one of those people that lose their lives.you cannot train them like DOGS.people get your HEADS OUT OF THE CLOUDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • u scientists r crazy and who in the world said u can clone a dino i want to live my life not be eaten by a t-rex thank u for ruining my life

  22. I searched another web site that said this this is so cool I learnd that dinosaurs and man lived together but goverment is keeping it a secret and a velociraptor is so fast you cant see it.

  23. this is scientist job I learned these creatures can be trained we will have them in zoo's and peting zoo's and if we can make big ones we can make small ones and what kid wouldent want a dinosaur some one anwser me if you have a reason

  33. Didn't know veterinary medicine meant you were a genius on regenerative genetics…would have been more believable if you had not used A. Florida, B. PETA (a dumb organization claiming animals have feelings and a purpose; if you want ethical treatment, start with the animals in the organization which are yourselves) C. Veterinary medicine instead of something like idk, bio-engineering or simple genetics and finally D. The fact that neither of those are pictures of the the Apatosaurus. Yay internet trolling 😛

    • there are multiple colleges of veterinary medicine that have cloning teams. while this article is obviously fake (only one source, this site) it's pretty wellmade.

  39. most of you against bringing dinos back arent even sure of the facts of the impact they would have on our world. you cant judge from knowledge gained from stupid movies and theories that some archeologist unsure of what he was unearthing in the first place. dont be stupid.

  40. wow now thats a thing to be folllowed. i think its not that dangerous to clone them ,i think human can control them if ever

    Reply
  41. You people who are against it are dumb.
    It's not abuse and could possibly have some positive impact on the world. I'm not saying I believe this story, as it was posted in 2011 and I don't see any pictures or possible proof so far, though I am for the continuation of moving forward in trying to clone these specimens. It would truly be a great thing to see them repopulate and roam the earth once again, and I can only hope that it happens in our lifetime. So before you go about posting stupid comments of how bad it would be to even try to clone these magnificent creatures that have captured the imaginations of so many, think about the positive effects it could have on out ever declining society, and how it could inspire many others. It could possibly even open up new jobs in our country which we desperately are in need of. Think about it, if one day it happens, it could have more of a positive impact on your life than you think,

    • Dinosaurs were wiped out by a meterorite, what they are making is not a dinosaur, just another subject of science. If the meteor never hit, troodon would have tooken out place. and if they do manage to create these…creatures then they will stat rampaging, it is they're instinct. I do not believe in god but seriously. get real if your going to make dinosaurs, make it in a 20 foot thick titanium room. you can never bring a dinosaur back to life its a bad idea that wont work dinosaurs have been extinct for 65 million years what they are making is a genetic monster.

    • Don't worry, God won't mind. We hadn't invented him yet back when these creatures died out. Or if you'd prefer a different way of thining about it: Whouldn't it be the ultimate flattery to "god" if we emulated him and created life. After all emulation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    • If your god lets us clone, then it's your god's will. We wouldn't have had the ability to perform such actions if we had free will.

    • i my self don't like church or the bible. but to be honest if there is a god he wants y to chose fom right to wrong. now do that i let you chose from killing or not killing othere humans. smoking and not smoking pot. and we all now what the right choice there ( no killing) (smoking pot) so on and on on on on on. and for that guy on top that said some stuff abouth gays every one can be what they what to be. worried abouth your self and let every one be what they want to be. church said the planet was flat (Wrong). the sun goes around earth (Worng). earth is the center of the universe(wrong). the pope dosen't rape kids (wrong). humans are the only intelligent species on earth. (Wrong. We got dulphin,dog,cat,your mom and otheres.
      Who nows if god is real or not. but i like to bet and if i bet i would bet yes. why cause i wont take my chances on wining a hell ticket
      Sorry For bad spelling And English

  42. these animals will not be able to survive our oxygen level is at least 20% less than it was in the Jurassic era for these animals need that percentage to grow large. look it see if I am wrong. A scientist got two tanks and got some piranhas same everything the only difference was the oxygen level he put in the tanks. The lower tank of coarse grew average day piranhas but the one with 20% higher grew piranhas like 3 times the size of the average day. I bet you can still find it on the net. I was 9yrs when I read it and i am now 22yrs.

  43. What the hell I don't want no freaking dinosuars running around. Ok it would be very amazing but we would only be amazed for a second before it eats you! Ok first off HAVEN'T THESE PEOPLE WATCHED JURASSIC PARK! Half of the people in the movie died! Second off the lord tells man not to mess with the ocean and the earth. He let everything happen for a reason. I think he let dinosuars die for a reason. Even if you do not believe in god still everything happens for a reason. I am only a teen and I know this is stupid. What world will my kids grow up in!!!

  44. Yep your dream will come true…haven't u seen jurassic park half of the people died! U will live to see your dream but shortly die cause a freaking Dino will eat you while your taking a crap. Think about it…aren't they extinct for a reason? All I am saying is I am terrified of what this world will become.

  45. Has this actually happened I know they tried doing this with modern elephants and mammoth DNA… But one thing jumps out at me with dinosaur DNA would they actually survive… I thought dinosaurs didn't have diaphragms …oxygen levels were a lot higher back then and with the rainforests getting bulldozed everyday oxygen is no we're near what it was back then….yes birds of today are similar to Dino's but very different in the same breath

  46. Oh,come on.They couldn't revive a simple Pyrenean ibex,that dyed a decade ago.You expect them to resurrect a 65 million year old dinosaur?.people can't be that stupid.It will take at least 20 years before we can revive any recent species perfectly.
