Scientists in Taiwan mixed genes from jelly fish with pig embryos to create green pigs. The four pigs that were actually born are green tinted and glow green at night when a blue light is shown on them. My question? Why?
So if, for instance, some of its stem cells are injected into another animal, scientists can track how they develop without the need for a biopsy or invasive test.
Great. But frankly, I don’t really ever want my bacon green. I usually throw it away if it is. At what point do we as humans stop screwing with this stuff? If pigs were meant to be green, they would be. Has no one seen “The Island of Dr. Moreau“? Maybe it’s my Christian roots showing, but some things we just shouldn’t screw with.
And no, I would not like them on a train.
