Very much looking forward to this. I hope they build a theme park on an island somewhere and the mammoths escape and kill most of the humans and the last humans escape from the island via helicopter and then two sequels happen.

Why a mammoth? Do some dinosaurs instead. Mammoths are just furry elephants.
Sing, goddess, of Achilles' ruinous anger
Which brought ten thousand pains to the Achaeans,
And cast the souls of many stalwart heroes
To Hades, and their bodies to the dogs
And birds of prey

No living tissue from dinosaurs has survived and we don't have the technology to do dinosaurs... yet.

I hope they make it happen before I die. They fascinated me to no end as a little boy and seeing one would simply be awe inspiring.

Mammuts? I hope they recover the Thylacine first.

I like this.  Sabre tooth tiger next please!  Cave lions too!  Though i suspect these won't have been as well preserved as the mamoth.

Dinosaur DNA has been preserved inside fossilized mosquitos from the jurassic period, from which dinosaurs can easily be reconstructed . I saw this in a documentary once.

I could see some point in recostructing Rita Hayworth and Ava Gardner.

Is the DNA still intact even after 90 million years? And are you sure you saw this on a reputable documentary rather than just watching Jurassic Park?

Another problem is, what would be the sort of creature we could impregnate that would be sufficiently equipped to give birth to a dinosaur?

We already have elephants for mammoths.

Dinosaurs, being reptiles, would need a massive creature with a womb designed for the growth of an egg with a shell. Perhaps a saltwater crocodile could give lay some of the tinier dinosaur eggs and those dinosaurs could grow into larger reptiles than a crocodile and they could then lay the eggs of even larger dinosaurs. But that's all just speculation on my part.

Actually,  in real life the insect's DNA was preserved.  Regardless, DNA is too fragile to survive being ingested.. Prgramme on about it last night actually.

Yes, that would really be a nice one to see revived, especially since it was so recently it went extinct and that there are good tissue samples preserved of it.

Harrison Ford as the ageing scientist realising his life dream. Scarlet Johannson as the overly clever young lab assistant who just happens to be complete sex. Shia Leobuff as the arrogant young protagonist who saves the day. David Attenbrough to (Once again) play the complacent ancient scientist who cannot possibly see anything that could possibly go wrong. Sorted. Oh yeah, James Cameron and bucketloads of special effects. Hollywood isn't what it used to be.

Nah, she still campains on behalf of dogs and sheep.
 
As for dinosaurs, unless we full knowledge of what is actually inside an egg we could have all the
DNA in the world and it won't matter. But I am optimistic about sabre tooths and Mammoths. Imagine the meat on that  thing.

And the Wolf of Tasmania was the only large dog-shaped carnivorous animal. When it went extinct the world lost something very valuable. You could lost the tiger or the lion, and still several species of cats would remain, but there was only one thylicine Cry

This is very true, it was a very unique animal that was sadly hunted to exstinction. The last one died in 1936, IIRC. I hope we can bring it back to life as well, we still have the preserved tissue to make it happen.
