Concept 32.2 The history of animals spans more than a half billion years - It’s hard to knock out genes and kill organisms because they have a history of a million years of surviving. - 97% of every animal is extinct (due to mass extinctions) - Scientists hope to clone extinct species? Dead mammals (frozen cells) and activated genes and produced a new organism (Jurassic Park concept). - Common ancestor of living animals lived 675-875 million years ago Cambrian explosion (535 –525 mya) marks the earliest fossil appearance of many major groups of living animals (large specimens) - Not really an explosion - More a gradual change occurring over 100 million years. -
