Starting next month scientists at the Brasilia Zoo will begin cloning 8 wild animals in an attempt to save them from extinction. Brazil will be the 3rd country, along with the US and South Korea, working on the cloning of wild animals.
The science of cloning has come a long way since the successful cloning of Dolly the sheep in Edinburgh in 1996. Dolly was the first mammal cloned from an adult cell. The 8 species the Brasilia Zoo will attempt to clone include the maned wolf, brush dog, grey brocket deer, bison, jaguar, black lion tamarin monkey, collared anteater, and the Brazilian aardvark.
Wild Animal Cloning in Brazil
2 years has been spent gathering 420 genetic samples of these animals from dead animals found in the outback of Brazil. All these samples are necessary for a process that has a 5-7% average success rate. Researchers at the Brasilia Zoo have previously produced over 100 living clones of cows and horses but the process for wild animals is different and the next stage is to get those researchers trained.
That training will take place while the group waits for legal approval to begin the cloning process.
Carlos Frederico Martins, one of the head researchers, would not say how long it could take to produce the first clone but he did say it would likely be a maned wolf.
If they are successful in cloning a jaguar they will be the first ones to clone a big cat. With only about 15,000 jaguars it would be a welcome relief. Though, the zoo has said that they would only release the cloned animals into the wild if the species was nearing total extinction.
A huge 15 pound Tasmanian King Crab was saved after being caught by fishermen in Australia. It took 3,000 euro to pry the crab away from the fishermen and was then sent to Britain to make a new home in an aquarium at the Sea Life Adventure Park in Weymouth, Dorset.
Brett Olson of Vermont filmed a crazy moose in his backyard as it was walking around in circles. The moose was infected by a brainworm which causes out of control behavior. The brainworm moose suddenly ran after and tried to attack Brett as he dropped his camera to the ground and took shelter inside his home.
Moose chases Camera Man
Brainworm is commonly found in about 80% of white tail deer and is known as the “moose disease” which kills man hoofed animals every year that share the same territory as these deer. The affects include tilting of the head, lose of balance and walking around in tight circles.
The Worlds biggest shark was captured by a photographer off the coast of Cancun. He was assisting Wild Aid with some whale shark photos in a project to help save the sharks from the break of extinction. While snapping photos, this one particular shot captured what appears to be the biggest shark ever seen alive. A giant shark indeed!
Worlds Largest Shark Video
This shark is just massive. Estimated at over 50 feet long you can see how gigantic it is next to this big 32 foot boat. Since most whales are considered mammals and sharks are classified as fish, this shark also goes down as the world record for the biggest fish on the planet.
It truly is sad how these whale sharks are being hunted and killed just for their fins and overall there are an estimated 73 million sharks that are killed each year.
It is truly amazing what these snakes can fit in their stomachs. The pythons in these two videos are enormous! It’s hard to believe that these giant snakes prey on such big animals.
Giant Snake eats a Cow
This python was measured over 20 feet long and ate an entire cow. He picked the wrong ranch to eat a cow from as the owner and his friends tracked the snake down and killed it when they found it nearby their other startled cows.
Giant Snake eats a Wild Boar
This video shows a snake that had been caught by a group of men. They kill the python and then proceed to lift her up with a crane. They work the snakes body and slowly push the big animal down towards the snake’s mouth. Eventually gravity takes over and the wild boar literally falls out of the snakes mouth and onto the ground.
