Have you ever dreamed of cloning something? Well, you can now clone your pets and other animals. If you clone a dog, it will begin as a baby and will not remember you, However, it will look exactly like the dog you wish to duplicate. Cloning is a new discovery we have started practicing in these past 30 years. We have not been able to clone humans in the past 35 years, but we have been able to clone monkeys. We are getting closer every day to cloning humans. Just a year ago, Oregon cloned a monkey. This is a big achievement because monkeys are primates. At first, we weren't able to clone primates and bigger species. In the future, we will be able to clone humans and bigger animals like elephants and whales.
Many animals have been cloned in the past 25 years. The first cloned animal was a salamander. The next big cloning project was Dolly the sheep. Dolly, the sheep was a rare Finn Dorset species of sheep that they bred with a normal sheep. This was the first cloning process that made humans ask themselves, “Can we clone ourselves and others?” Today we have gone so far, we even cloned a monkey. Many things will be cloned in the future, right now we are trying to clone extinct animals, but we are far from getting close. As we progress we will bring back new types of animals. What do you think will be cloned next?
Lastly, we all have to wait to clone humans, because there are rules against doing that. The government won’t allow anyone to clone humans. in 2002, it was claimed that the first human clone was made but there was no evidence to support the claim. There are going to be many new discoveries in cloning. Right now, they are trying to bring back the mammoth. Their only problem is that we are just at the beginning of the age of cloning. Overall, we should all look up to the new discoveries about cloning.
