Clones of animals

Many people remember a few years ago, the world learned of the cloned Dolly the sheep.
Its creator is the scientist Ian Wilmut from England. But let's look at the lesser-known clones of other animals.

When the company «BioArts International» decided to conduct an experiment in cloning a dog, the choice fell on the German shepherd Tracker. On this heroic dog repeatedly written media. September 11, 2001 this heroic dog almost two days without rest worked on the ruins of New York shopping mall searching for victims. In June 2009, it came to light five healthy puppies - clones tracker.

These white kittens handiwork of geneticists from South Korea. A team of scientists has created three clones cats with modified DNA. The skin of these animals glows red when exposed to ultraviolet rays. Korean researchers believe that their work will help in the treatment of genetic diseases in humans and animals.

This handsome Maine Coon Little Nicky (Little Nicky) is also a clone and was born in September 2004, after the death of a seventeen-year-older cat Nicky. The mistress of the old cat is very fond of his pet, and therefore decided to cloning, paying him $ 50 000. It was the first cloning for commercial purposes.

The Korean customs are six cloned dogs - bloodhounds. Their cloning cost the state 240 thousand dollars. This experiment was caused by the fact that of all the dogs in only 35 per cent observed an excellent sense of smell and the ability to search for drugs. Among the clones already trained dogs, this percentage is much higher and reaches 90.
