The first cloned pet (above) in North America recently arrived home where version1 of himself used to reside and he’s a spittin’ image of his oldself.
Of course the question still remains on whether long term v2’s personality mimics v1 so there’s some risk to the $155k the family spent was put to good use. This ABC News article covers the homecoming and also some of the pitfalls of cloning for families by recounting issues seen with a cloned bull.
Good news though, as the cloning technology improves, the cost has already come down and may only cost you $55k, possibly this year. I can see this costing just $5k within the next 3-5 years and at that time it will be accessible to the average family.
