I was under the impression that Dolly the sheep has very short telomeres
(indicating advanced age) but is phenotypically a 3 year old sheep. So, her
genotype doesn't match up to her phenotype according to the telomere/aging theory. Doesn't this present problems to the theory?

Anyone know more than I about this?
