Does anyone know why they try to rebuild dinosaurs from millennia ago,

and not try it first with lately died species like the DODO??

It must be even more simple to rebuild the DNA from a mouse or a rat,

so why don't they try this first, before beginning with the "BIG" work??

This is the first and only awnser I got so far:
There is a Japanese scientist who is planning to try and recreate
mammoths, using elephants and mammoth genes (or mammoth sperm, at any
rate), since there are plenty of frozen mammoths around in good
condtion to provide material.  (How about, 'Mammoth Park'???)
