Frozen Mice Have Healthy Pups -- (BBC -- August 15, 2006) 


Mice kept in the deep freeze for 15 years have fathered healthy 
offspring, say scientists in Japan and Hawaii. It offers hope to 
those trying to bring extinct animals back from the dead. In the 
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers wrote: 
"If spermatozoa of extinct mammalian species (eg woolly mammoths) can 
be retrieved from animal bodies that were kept frozen for millions of 
years in permanent frost, live animals might be restored by injecting 
them into oocytes from females of closely related species."
