A Korean scientists claims to have cloned 2 wolves.
Hwang Woo-suk claims he succeeded in cloning 2 wolves born October 18 and 26th,2005.
Veterinary professor, Lee Byeong-chun, confirmed the endangered species births.
The two wolves were named Snuwolf and Snuwolffy. Their DNA proves they are clones.
Lee and his team have also been successful in cloning a female dog, an Afghan hound, in 2005. This was the world's first cloned dog named Snuppy.
They had reported that they were able to clone human stem cells but that report was later determined to be false. However the cloning of the dog was confirmed. Lee and Hwang and other former members of the team are on trial of charges of misappropriating research funds.
The wolves DNA tests will be published in the journal Cloning and Stem Cells.
Stem cell research is frowned upon by many but it is also a great step in finding cures for many different diseases such as Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia and Parkinson's.
