great news for pig farmers
since they wont lose their animals in the dark





bbc news

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.

The researchers, from National Taiwan University's Department of Animal Science and Technology, say that although the pigs glow, they are otherwise no different from any others.

Taiwan is not claiming a world first. Others have bred partially fluorescent pigs before. But the researchers insist the three pigs they have produced are better.

Wow. This is exactly what the world has needed to solve so many of it's problems in one fell swoop -- glowing, flourescent pigs. Now if only we could grow wings on pigs and teach them to fly. It would be the end of global procrastination. No one could ever put off solving world problems with the excuse, "when pigs fly".

Maybe it would change to "when sheep fly".
Before anyone makes one, no jokes about the weapon from worms.

So far I dont really see a use for glowing animals...although stem cell research has ALOT of potential. Actually...on the other hand "New glowing hermit crabs!"I would buy those things by the dozen! Seriously some money could be made with glowing animals, never be startled by you're pet ferret in the middle of the night again.
