Fluorescent Glowin' Pigs

Flurorescent glowin' pigs!

Scientists in Taiwan say they have bred three pigs that glow in the dark.

They claim that while other researchers have bred partly fluorescent pigs, theirs are the only pigs in the world which are green through and through.

The pigs are transgenic, created by adding genetic material from jellyfish into a normal pig embryo.

The researchers hope the pigs will boost the island's stem cell research, as well as helping with the study of human disease.

But the glowing has nothing to do with that. They just thought it "looked kinda freaky."

Fluorescent. Glowin'. Pigs.

Thanks to Dave and Hubris (whose blog address I can't seem to find on Google).
