Mind-blowing meatball made from woolly mammoth DNA unveiled

An Australian company has unveiled their mind-blowing meatball made from DNA extracted from the extinct woolly mammoth.

Co-founder Tim Noakesmith told The Guardian they chose the woolly mammoth because “it’s a symbol of diversity loss and a symbol of climate change.”
