Dolly

The cloned sheep

 

Dolly the sheep, the first adult mammal to be successfully cloned, died in February 2003. When taxidermists finished their work, the body of the preserved Dolly was put on display at the Royal Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.

 According to a report by Reuters, a spokeswoman for the Royal Museum said that Dolly's “looking great. She’s on all fours and her head is slightly tilted to one side. She used to get a lot of human visitors, and that’s the expression she always used to great them.”

The original experiment that produced Dolly attempted to clone 276 sheep embryos; Dolly was the only success. She was born in 1996 and was euthanized in 2003 when she developed a progressive lung disease.
