A cloned arctic wolf met the public at Harbin Polarland in Northeast China's Heilongjiang province lately.

Its donor cell came from the skin samples of a wild arctic wolf named Maya, who had been introduced from Canada to Harbin Polarland. Its oocyte was from a female dog in estrus and its surrogate mother was a beagle.

Now the wolf pup is in good health condition and lives with its surrogate mother at Harbin Polarland.

Arctic wolf is an endangered species. They are found in northern Eurasia and northern parts of Canada and Greenland.
