  • Ice Age Puppy

    Similar preservation to the 40,000 year old wolf head Greg posted. 18,000 years old. These things are appearing as the permafrost thaws. Truly amazing preservation. Researchers are trying to determine if this be dog or wolf?

      What are your thoughts on bringing some of these species back .... I’m torn on the notion...

        The thing that is absolutely coming out of the permafrost alive and well are lots of types of bacteria and viruses.

        Most of them will be completely harmless or simply so similar to what already have that they don't make an impact, but there might be something really nasty locked up in the permafrost. (A type of bovine respiratory virus in the lungs of some 40,000 year old bison that modern cows can't handle could devastate a several billion dollar industry that also feeds billions of people.)

        Very true, I’ve always been concerned about such things. I remember when my son was young and he wasn’t given the small pox vaccine. I had a fit ! The doctor told me that that virus had been wiped off the face of the earth..He got irritated at me when I demanded he be given the inoculation...He said they wasn’t any being produced at that time. I knew that the viral species was in labs . Anyway he got his vaccination in the military ...
