    It's caused some alarm among local environmentalists. One said something like this: if people think extinct animals can be re-created, they won't fuss too much about endangered species.

    It's also brought the old stories out of the woodwork. One Tasmanian forest ranger said he didn't believe the tigers were extinct, because he often saw their fresh signs in the wild. (Last known one was killed in 1936!) We "mainlanders" often make local jokes about Tasmanian inbreeding, perhaps they're really not jokes?

    Funny you should mention that, just a couple of years ago, you may remember these guys trying to ship a massive Rex fossil and they either cracked it accidently or on purpose to get it into a box and lo and behold, found soft tissue still inside the center of the bone which was something like 75 million years old. It turned out to not have recoverable DNA but who knows what might lurk in the center of some specimen somewhere locked in the basement of some museum.
