This is some great scientific discovery, as scientists in Vietnam have found that they can clone a pig by using the somatic cells of ear tissue. 

Could this mean humans could be cloned as well? Maybe other animals? Could it be as simple as taking this tissue from an ear?

Wow that's pretty impressive news. Does make you wonder if this could result in us better cloning humans. I wouldn't mind cloning a smaller version of myself haha! :D

That's really cool. I wish I could clone my dog Chef, he was such a good boy, and cloning him would be interesting. I'm curious to see if it's 100% identical.

@maya lol I wish I could clone myself to do my work. That would be quite nice! :D 

But seriously, cloning is so interesting. I just wonder if we can one day bring the dead back by cloning.

Soon enough we'll be able to clone whoever we want with ease. Now if only we can actually close animals that have gone extinct.

If that's possible, maybe they will now be able to clone dinosaurs. Imagine if they did an actual jurassic park. That would be cool!
