Ralph, the cloned Rat

French scientists have cloned the first rat. They are expected to provide a highly useful tool for studying human diseases. Rats provide an important animal model for researching human disorders such as high blood pressure, diabetes and neurological problems. Pictured is Ralph, the first rat cloning success.
Cloned sheep, cat, and dog...but has anyone heard of the cloned RAT? Of course not...
