Error?

"At the Roslin Institute in Scotland, scientists successfully cloned an exact copy of a sheep, named 'Dolly'. This was the first successful cloning of an animal, and most likely the first occurrence of two organisms being genetically identical."

What about single-egg twins and animals which reproduce by splitting themselves?

It is not cloning. I think. single egg twins are formed with mitosis in early stage.
By the way, is this a site suggestion? I dont think so...
