Quiz Question: A sheep born in 1996 was the first animal cloned from an adult cell. What was her name?

The given options are as follows:

  • Dolly
  • Holly
  • Molly

The correct answer is: Dolly

Fact: Dolly lived to the age of six at the lab in Scotland where she was born, giving birth to six lambs in her life (but in the natural fashion, not via cloning). The science behind her cloning led to huge leaps in stem cell research, not to mention countless more replicated critters.
