È il sogno dei bambini di tutto il mondo vedere animali giganti camminare di nuovo sulla terra. Potremmo, o dovremmo, realizzare quel sogno? Hendrik Poinar fa un intervento informativo sulla prossima grande scoperta: il tentativo di riportare una creatura che assomiglia molto al nostro amico peloso, il mammut lanoso. La prima fase, sequenziare il genoma lanoso, è quasi completa. (Filmato a TEDxDeExtinction).
