Mammoths are kinda older though, like 5000 years old, but Akira Iritani, a professor at Kyoto University, is reactivating his campaign to bring those animals back to life.

Now the technical problems have been overcome, all we need is a good sample of soft tissue from a frozen mammoth

he told The Daily Telegraph.

Back in 1990s there had been many efforts to recover nuclei in cells from the skin and muscle tissues from mammoths, but failed as they had been too badly damaged by the extreme cold.
