In addition to low success rates, cloned animals tend to have more compromised immune function and higher rates of infection, tumor growth, and other disorders. Cloned animals that do survive tend to be much bigger at birth than their natural counterparts. “Cloned animals also experience many health complications, such as abnormally large organs, and so they often die early.
