 Bernann McKinney from the U.S. holds one of five cloned puppies, the offspring of her late bullterrier Booger, upon her first meeting with them at the Seoul National University Hospital for Animals in Seoul. RNL Bio, a South Korean company dedicated to the development of stem cell therapeutics and the commercialization of dog cloning technology, announced on Tuesday that the firm successfully cloned McKinney's pet dog and was commencing its world-wide dog cloning services. Five clones, named Booger Bernann, Booger Ra, Booger Lee, Booger Hong and Booger Park, were born from two surrogate mother dogs. (Image: Reuters)

 South Korean stem cell scientist Hwang Woo-suk (R) and Gyeonggi province governor Kim Moon-su (2nd R) hold a cloned coyote during a donation ceremony at a wildlife protection centre in Pyeongtaek, south of Seoul. Hwang donated eight coyotes that he and his research team at the Sooam Biotech Research Foundation cloned to help the endangered species, to the Gyeonggi provincial government, local media reported. Hwang was at the heart of a research fraud case in 2005, where a team he led was found by review boards to have manipulated key data in its studies on cloning stem cells. South Korea, considered then a global leader in human embryonic stem cell research, all but put stem cell research into deep freeze as a result of the scandal. (Image: Reuters)

 Pieraz-Cryozootech-Stallion, a 48 day old cloned foal, runs in a field outside the northern Italian city of Cremona. Pieraz-Cryozootech-Stallion was born February 25, 2005 from the genes of castrated endurance champion Pieraz, an Arab stallion. The genetics companies LTR-CIZ and Cryzootech say that it is the first clone reproduced for the purposes of making a breeding animal from a sterile animal. (Image: Reuters)

Noori who weighed 1.3 kg (2.9 lb) at birth on March 9, 2012 is the world's first cloned Pashmina goat and is doing well so far, said Doctor Riaz Ahmad Shah, who heads the project at SKUAST. Pashmina goats, which grow a thick warm fleece, survive on grass in Ladakh where temperatures plunge to as low as minus 20 degrees Celsius (minus 4 degrees Fahrenheit). (Image: Reuters)

A cloned fluorescent dog Ruppy (R), a seventeen-month-old beagle, and her three-month-old puppy are seen at Seoul National University's College of Veterinary Medicine in Seoul. The puppy is one of "2nd generation Ruppies", offspring of "Ruppy", the world's first transgenic dogs which carry fluorescent genes. They took a fluorescent protein, much like that produced by some sea anenomes, and inserted it into the cell of a beagle. The name "Ruppy" is a combination of the words "Ruby" and "Puppy", and the offsprings of such dogs will possess the same fluorescent gene as their mothers. (Image: Reuters)

Italian scientists said, they have created the world's first cloned horse from an adult cell of a horse who gave birth to her genetic twin. Prometea weighed in at 36 kilos (80lbs) when she was born during a natural delivery on May 28, 2003 in Italy after a normal, full-term pregnancy. (Image: Reuters)
