First cloned buffalo born

BEIJING, Mar. 21 -- The world’s first water buffalo cloned from somatic cells was born Thursday morning in South China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

The buffalo’s heart rate, temperature and breathing were normal. About 30 minutes after the birth, the calf stood up and nursed, said doctor Shi Deshun, head of the research project at Guangxi University.
