Cloned creatures

Chinese scientists have cloned monkeys using the same technique that produced Dolly the sheep two decades ago, breaking a technical barrier that could open the door to copying humans. Zhong Zhong and Hua Hua, two identical long-tailed macaques, seen here January 20, 2018, were born eight and six weeks ago, making them the first primates -- the order of mammals that includes monkeys, apes and humans -- to be cloned from a non-embryonic cell.

Bernann McKinney from the U.S. holds one of five cloned puppies, the offspring of her late bull terrier Booger, upon her first meeting with them at the Seoul National University Hospital for Animals in Seoul August 5, 2008. RNL Bio, a South Korean company dedicated to the development of stem cell therapeutics and the commercialization of dog cloning technology, successfully cloned McKinney's pet dog and commenced worldwide dog cloning services. Five clones, named Booger Bernann, Booger Ra, Booger Lee, Booger Hong and Booger Park, were born from two surrogate mother dogs on July 28, 2008. REUTERS/Jo Yong-Hak

A cloned fluorescent dog Ruppy (R), a 17-month-old beagle, and her three-month-old puppy are seen at Seoul National University's College of Veterinary Medicine in Seoul May 13, 2009. The puppy is one of "2nd generation Ruppies", offspring of "Ruppy", the world's first transgenic dogs which carry fluorescent genes. Scientists took a fluorescent protein, much like that produced by some sea anemones, and inserted it into the cell of a beagle. The name "Ruppy" is a combination of the words "Ruby" and "Puppy", and the offsprings of such dogs will possess the same fluorescent gene as their mothers. REUTERS/Jo Yong-Hak
