Dolly the Sheep, the first mammal to be cloned from an adult cell, was born on 5 July 1996. She had been cloned from a cell taken from a mammary gland and, in the words of Ian Wilmut, leader of the project team at Edinburgh's Roslin Institute: "Dolly is derived from a mammary gland cell and we couldn't think of a more impressive pair of glands than Dolly Parton's".
Dolly was mated with a Welsh mountain ram (name unknown) and subsequenmtly gave birth to six lambs, Bonnie in1998, Sally and Rosie in1999, and Lucy, Darcy and Cotton in 2001.
She then developed arthritis and died at the age of six. She was then stuffed and exhibited at the Museum of Edinburgh.
