The nucleus of a skin cell taken from the ear of an adult male Afghan hound (left) was initially transferred into an egg cell of a yellow Labrador retriever (right). The altered egg was implanted in the Labrador. And the resulting clone, Snuppy, (center) was delivered by caesarian section after 60 days.

Scientists say this type of cloning, known as somatic-cell nuclear transfer (SCNT), may be a way to preserve rare species.
Snuppy was born on April 24, 2005 as the result of this cloning. And the cloning was performed by South Korean scientists at Seoul National University.
