Science: They are back! What happened?
There are possibilities that
extinguished species could reappear thanks to science. Not exactly dinosaurs like in the film of Jurassic park are going to reaper, this is because scientists need DNA to reappear species and dinosaurs have been extinct for far too long to recover their DNA. But new extinguished species could be brought back to life; even ice age animals like the wooly mammoth could be brought back. There could be some animals that could adapt to their new environment, but... there could be some other animals that could not adapt to the new habitats.
