A clone is an organism that is genetically identical to the organism from which it was produced! :)

P.S. - Cloning is like creating twin. The created twin will be far younger than the organism from which it was produced. Anyway, it needs surrogate mother womb. In a way cloning is done to 'reverse time elapsed'.

Cloning isn't just a genetic identical organism, You may take a cell from a jellyfish and place in cats, rabbit or mice and the animal glows in the dark once charged with UV light. The animals genetic structure is still the same just with another cell producing another hormone. Hope this Helps :) Good luck :)

Cloning is the creation of an organism that is an exact genetic copy of another. This means that every single bit of DNA is the same between the two!

When you clone something you make a genetically identical copy of it.
