So this is bizarre, folks…some South Korean scientists have engineered four dogs that actually glow red in the dark. They used some sort of cloning techniques that they hope will assist in developing cures for human diseases. (How they make that connection, I’m not sure, but then again, I’m no scientist!)
Just how much do they glow? By daylight, you can hardly tell, with their bellies and toe nails glowing a bit to the naked eye. But by night, their fluorescent genes are clearly noticeable. Scientists in the U.S., Japan and in Europe had previously cloned fluorescent mice and pigs, but this was the first time dogs were successfully modified.
Hey, I suppose if you bike a lot at night, being fluorescent wouldn’t be so bad, or maybe you’d stand out at the all the late night raves…I just don’t know if I’d really want to glow in the dark. You’d never be able to sneak up on anyone, ever again!
