The above picture released on Thursday, Aug. 9, 2007 shows a fourth-generation cloned pig, which was created by Japanese researchers.

He said the male pig -- whose forebearers starting from his great-grandfather were also cloned in laboratories -- was born on July 23 at the university in Tokyo. Link
