8 Species That Are Threatening to Swarm the Globe | A Sense of the Ridiculous | Scoop.it
It's paradoxical that there are some species out there that we just can't exterminate, and not for want of trying. These creatures breed out of control and march steadily forth, taking human territory miles at a time.

14 extinct animals that could be resurrected

14 extinct animals that could be resurrected | A Sense of the Ridiculous | Scoop.it
Can lost species ever become un-extinct? In the 1993 science fiction film "Jurassic Park," dinosaurs are cloned back to life after their DNA is discovered still intact within the bellies of ancient mosquitoes that were preserved in amber. While the science of cloning is still in its infancy, many scientists now believe it's only a matter of time before many extinct animals again walk the Earth.
