First Ever Cloned Endangered Species Makes Public Debut
An eight-month-old male Javan banteng makes his public debut on Thursday, January 22, 2004 at the San Diego Zoo. Named Jahava, which means "bull" in Javan, the 500-pound banteng is the first ever successful cloned endangered species to survive and be viewed by the public. Jahava was cloned by transferring the DNA of frozen skin cells from a banteng into empty eggs from an ordinary domestic cow as part of a cross-continental effort. The banteng is a wild bovine species from the forests of Southeas Asia and is closely related to the domestic cow. (UPI Photo/Ken Bohn/San Diego Zoo)
