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. hi!,I love your writing very much! share we be in contact more approximately your article on AOL? I need an expert on this area to unravel my problem. May be that's you! Looking ahead to see you.

  2. i would to like know more about your research with this subject, i am facinated with the idea and would like to know how the biology works with this specimen. Thank You.

  3. Thank you for the information you write in this article, I like your style of writing, I wish there were more people like you who are willing to share knowledge through the Website which can be read by all people from all over the world .. Greetings .. success for you ..I want to share some info about a flower shop in Indonesia and tourist attraction in Indonesia, this may be useful to the reader .. please visit my website below.

  4. Today I got a lot of information from your article .. I hope you continue to write articles that are beneficial to us all .. .. Greetings .. success for you ..see u..

  5. Half the people on here can't even spell or write a coherent sentence, I struggle reading through all of your illegible crappy sentences. All of you shut the fuck up.

  6. Here comes the miracle of genetic engineering but then see the danger side too.Whatif they turned to destroy the world like before? hope you guys had thought about it..and please let us know more about this technique..

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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
